ive never kept shrimp so this will all be new to me...
heres the specs of the tank-
- 3 gallon DBP
- eco complete
- red sea nano
- marineland single bright 18"
fire red shrimp
xmas moss, java moss, anubias, sword, a few floaters
i cycled the tank for nearly two weeks with seeded filter media, plants, snails and driftwood before taking home some fire reds from the swap. these were shrimp that were bred in local water and i hope that it has an advantage to my first try.
here's the first fts-
it been just a week and i've lost zero shrimp! even more crazy, ive had 3 molt and one give birth!!! i know the shrimp came berried but even still it was pretty sweet to witness that in the first week. we may have started with 10 shrimp but now we have far more swimming around.
heres some things im working on some solutions for
1) shrimp and now baby shrimp diets and feeding
ive fed algae wafers now twice and they all ate, but i wanna mix it up
the flow of the nano is good but im getting some surface film, also looking to upgrade from panty hose to a real filter guard (what size is small enough to fit?
the wood is leaching but i've only done a 20% change so far, still some color in the water
