depends on what type of shrimp.
With RCS, you could fit 10/gallon with no problems...but with larger types you'll need more room.
For a 2.65, I'm gonna suggest to start with 10, maybe 15. They breed like rabbits so you'll have that tank full in no time!
I'd actually suggest getting something larger if possible. Since they do breed a lot your going to end up with a ton of shrimplets within a few months. They are a pretty good money maker too so you'll probably want to have as much room for new babies as possible.
