My filterless Bbottom shrimp tank

This tank has been set up for quite awhile now. Its a 100g shrimp breeder tank. The sun sun filter for this tank
would always go on and off due to the amount of air entering in, so now its just powered by airstones and lighting.
Been this way for a month plus now. Just wanted to share

Consists of
cbs (if these start to breed, I'll add bkk and wine reds)
blue rilis?

java moss 85%
mini xmas moss 15%

lighting
t8s
power glo x 2
flora glo x 1

100% ro, seachem equilibrium(want to change to mineral plus ultra)-tds around 150

4 airstones powered by two fusion 500 pumps

barebottom

It is hard to spot shrimp in this 100g tank let alone babies(rilis)(I've only seen one so far) cbs have not bred yet but have reached breedable size, here are shots

I love the simplicity. Once they start breeding, they'll explode.

Wow, this is absolutely awesome! This will be a site to see when all those little shrimp babies are growing. I've been toying with the idea of getting some snails and the Nerite was one i was considering, the melasian trumpet snail was the other. I will be curious to see how the Nerite does in your environment. Good Luck!!

Thanks. Just one nerite but its been in there forever since I used to have discus in that tank and when the tank was drained even to about 1" of water. Its doing very well, eggs have accumulated all of the tank from just that one nerite.

So you dont have any biological filtration other than the moss and driftwood? I'd at least throw a sponge on the end of one of those air pumps. Once you get a few hundred shrimp in there you will definitely need some type of media for bacteria to grow on. Still a nice looking tank though. Nice looking shrimp too. Good luck!
