I have joined the shrimp gang!
Found somewhere that sells them yesterday and today I now have 6.5 red cherry shrimp swimming around a bowl (.5 because there is a baby).
I have to say, I have found them great fun to watch so far!

do these cherry shrimp eat newt eggs at all?
I made the mistake of adding gammarus to some of my newt tanks years back as a food source, they breed like mad, arent eaten by the newts and eat newt eggs

Donīt worry Morg, they donīt. I thought they might when i first got red cherries but experience quickly showed that they donīt even touch them. Iīve never had any problems with the shrimp and young larvae either. These shrimps are just too good. I canīt believe itīs not butter!

Scuds are completely different, they are surprisingly predatory. I wish i could get the knack of breeding them, though, excellent food!

They sound quite interesting.
Sorry if this has already been covered in this thread and Ive missed it, but the main foods used for my newts in live bloodworm, and live tubifex, would the red cherry shrimp eat those?
In one large newt set up I introduced gammarus too and the population exploded, Id put the livefoods into a feeding bowl in the tank, and the gammarus swarmed in taking all the bloodworm etc before the newts got a chance.
I had to completely strip and restart that tank
