Thumbs up Bare Bottom

Can red cherries be kept in a bare bottom 20G?
It'll be low tech with lots of moss and ferns/aunbis attached to wood. Filter is Eden 511 (so plenty of good bio).

I cant foresee any problems with a bare bottom tank.

Bare bottom tanks a method for mass breeding. You won't have issues.

ah thanks for this information.

I just want to reduce the dust and dirt that cling onto moss.

I haven't seen any instances of bare bottom tanks being used for mass shrimp breeding though. Shrimp like to have something to hold onto and I think they would be stressed in a bare bottom tank

Bare bottom doesn't mean without moss or something. Just no substrate.

I like non substrate tanks when the accompany driftwood and attached plants. They make great breeding tanks and still maintain a great look.
