Fishnchips808 Posted December 4, 2016 Report Share Posted December 4, 2016 I've searched the Internet for the answer to the question "do shrimp sleep" and I've come up with plenty of articles but I wanted to get some input from actual current shrimp keepers. Some people said that shrimp do in fact sleep, and do so by sitting motionlessly, while others said that motionless shrimp are a sign of impending death. I ask this question because I recently had an ammonia spike in one of my shrimp tanks in which many of the shrimp were laying still which led me to do water changes to save their lives. However months later my tanks are stable and my parameters are ideal, but every now and then I see a group of shrimp huddled in the corner of my tank sitting still with the lights on. I assume that they're in the corner since the darker and they're sleeping, if in fact they are sleeping. Or perhaps they're all congregating in the corner to die together. Anyone else have similar experiences with shrimp sleeping? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
