Filter for baby shrimp

Human Shrimp

Recommended Posts

So in my 5.5 gallon aquarium I have cherry shrimp, I plan to breed them, but don't have a sponge filter. I was going to buy one or put some cut pieces of sponge over the intakes, when I took a good thorough look and my aquarium, and I noticed hundreds if not thousands of Copepoda on the glass, wood, substrate, plants and even saw them going in and out of the filter intakes. There is a sponge inside the filter. If these copepods can explode in such massive numbers and move inside and outside the filter without problem, will shrimplets survive as well or should I still cover the intakes?
