Question How many Ghost shrimp?

How many ghost shrimp can You keep per gallon??? My lil sis is interested in keeping them separate. :)

8 month - Betta -VT-male- Peach
9 month - Golden Retriever -Female- Dixie
7 year old - Cinnamon Cockatiel -Female- Ladybird
And a black mystery snail named, Bon-Bon Hoss

To do list:
1. Save money
2. Ask Parents
3. Buy all the Bettas in PetSmart.

And my Betta's getting kinda of aggressive with the shrimp. :P The shrimp would be safer in their own little home. :)

I would personally go with 1-10 per gallon, though I have heard of some people keeping up to 100 per gallon. I wouldn't do it, though - I know they have a tiny bioload, but 100? That's a lot of shrimp.

Life.

5 or 6 per gallon. They have almost a nonexistant Bioload, but they can get agressive if cramped too much.
