So you have three tanks? One of which is cycled?
Neither of these are fit for anything living, minus snails.
MABJ's iDevice used for this message :p
I think you are confused and it may be how I worded things. The tanks that I am discussing are a 27 gallon tank that has been setup for well over a year now and a 10 gallon that I just setup and is currently cycling. The shrimp are housed in the 27 gallon tank at the moment. Nothing is in the 10 gallon tank until it fully cycles.
