    Today, I'm gonna try an experiment in the pond. I'm going to add 12 red cherry shrimp in the pond. Lets see how fast they get eaten or will they actually survive and breed. They do have a lot of places to hide. I even have a small rock they can hide in. We'll see...

    Anyone do this sorta thing in their pond?

    I do not think they are going to survive in your climate unless your pond is indoors

    Yes, the cherry shrimp will not survive outdoors in winter. I have put cherry shrimp in with indoor goldies (125g tank, lot's of plants) mostly wishing they would all be eaten as I had tons of baby shrimp from another tank. Some disappeared but many survived to breed even more in the goldfish tank!

    Odd cause I read they can survive winter in a pond. Do you know any that can winterize in a pond outside?
