One wire to one, one wire to the other, I bought a pair of them and wired them both up to one plug, I used crimps and heat shrink tubing but you could solder or even use wire nuts. They're ungrounded.

Thanks Amanda I'm gonna put pea puffers in the tank next to it, the top tanks will be shrimp tanks, and the bottom tanks will be farm tanks for propagating plants to sell to all of you wonderful tpt members and my Lfs.

Yeah

Top 2 will be shrimp tanks
Bottom 2 will be farm tanks for propagating plants
The tank on the rack is my quarantine tank and the one next to it will have pea puffers

Oooooooooh I'm jealous. I'd love to do something like this. Hopefully you put shrimp in your plant tanks too. They will appreciate the nitrates the shrimp give off

If you think it is possible, you could try low grade cherries! They can withstand more CO2 than most other shrimp.
