    can one keep more than one boxer shrimp in a 300l tank?

    I have a boxer now for over a year, and was thinking of getting another? Can one keep more than 1? I know that this boxer killed off my cleaner shrimp when I put it in (or think it did, as my cleaner disappeared soon after my boxer was introduced).

    So if I add another boxer.. will my existing boxer make mince meet out of the new boxer?

    How much do you guys have in one tank?

    Boxer shrimps could only be kept in mated pairs.

    My experience with them are - NO once you have an established boxer in your aquarium he will hunt and atempt to kill the intruding boxer or be killed by the new boxer.

    Unfortunately - TRUE - the boxer WILL most likely try to kill the "new intruder"...
