so my dad didnt want the tank downstairs with 3 female shrimp in. so i took them and they are aqulimating in the 5 gallon tank which has 3 endlers livebearers . i thought that the male shrimps in the tank where gone. but now i see 1 is left. 

i dont want breeding at all.

what do i do?


i have a 10 gallon which ive had for a long time with 3 male shrimp - could i put him in here?

and i have a new 20 gallon with no inhabitants and im not sure if the water is right (been cycling for 3 weeks) - do i risk it putting them in here?

If you don't want offspring then putting him in the tank with the other males would be the best option.

Do you mind if I ask why you don't want them to breed?  They have a very small bioload.

Just put him with the other male shrimp

i ended up finding out the cherry shrimp which i thought was female was male so i put the male cherry in the 5 gallon. and the 2 females went into the new tank
