I decided to finally retire my mouldy old 2nd hand tank and got this one
Im running the standard issue pump, a PAT-Mini filter with about 400 liters/h output. I'm new to shrimp but they dont seem to mind the current.
Temp has stabilized at around 23-25C after a messy 32-33C when I managed to put it in an apparently really hot window. I think I lost some berries.. but at least no shrimp died
Shrimp-substrate topped with random white sand
1 Cryptocoryne willisii
8 Rili shrimp + shrimplets
2 Amano shrimp
2 Pond snails
I will be adding at least one more type of plant, perhaps replacing the polysperma.. atm I just took what I had at home for a starter.
I'm dosing PMDD (no copper) and have DIY CO2 connected to the outflow from the pump, which has an intake for air built on it. I just took the air tube and stuck it on my yeast bottle
The light is a LED floodlight, 30 LED's at 0.2W, so 6W in total. Its alot brighter then the standard lighting, though warmer light. It dosent say what kelvin it is but Im guessing around 4000k.
First month of shrimpkeeping
Nothing fancy yet, but I think its fun!
