Shrimps eating each other???!

Recommended Posts

i have around lots of ghost shrimps, some yellow cherry shrimp, some red and black crystal shrimp and a little bit of blue glass shrimp, I've had them for 2 weeks now. their tank has driftwoods, plants an shrimp sand. They eat fish flakes. now they seem to be flipping each other around to try to eat each other and some have been eating dead ones. Why is this happening?

Hi Victoria, if you can provide us with more details on the setup it'd be easier to try and help you. But with the information you provided, all I could tell you, is that you have mixed too many species of shrimp with different water parameter requirements and most probably they might be eating the shrimp that might've recently died like you say or on the really weak ones.
