help setting up shrimp breeding tank
for those of you who dont know petco is having a nationwide sale on tanks right now. $1 a gallon so i picked up a 20L yesterday for only $20!
so i wanted to set up a crs/bee shrimp breeding tank. I have an already establised 2.5gal shrimp tank that has the parameters of:
gh-4-5 (drops api test kit)
kh-1-2 (drops api test kit)
so my new tank should have the same parameters or really close. so can i expect crs to breed? if not what shrimp will readily breed as i am trying to get a colony going.
right now i only have the 20L tank and one of those Hydro sponge V bubble filters for aquariums up to 125 gallons.
i was planning on getting fluval shrimp stratum. is 2 of the 8lbs bags enough to buffer my ph in the 6.4-6.7 range? im planning on going the cheapest route is there another substrate that is cheaper?
cheap heater that works well for shrimp?
will that one bubble filter be enough? maybe i'll add another once the shrimp breed? idk....
any other things thats a must have, recomendations for a crs breeding tank? remember i want to keep things as cheap as possible but i want to have successful breeding as well.
