Hey everyone,

So I decided to jump aboard the shrimp train after realizing that a month was too short to learn and make a pico-reef tank. That's gonna be another project, maybe this summer. But in the meantime, this shrimp tank can definitely happen haha

I'll try to keep this first post as recent as possible or at least add links to where each step of my build is.


Size: 12 gallon long
Filter: 2 Small Sponge Filters, Eheim ECCO Pro 2232
Lighting: 3 x 13W 6500K CFL bulbs in a DIY Hood Housing
Substrate: Fluval Shrimp Stratum (Donated by Betta Maniac. Thanks so much for your generosity!)
Heater: Ebo Jager 75W with DIY Inline modification
Hardscape: Red Lava Rock, Manzanita
Stand: DIY Steel Stand

Just the tank

Custom Mesh Cover

The stand

Tank with lighting over it
