No, custom made. I asked for a PVC bottom. The guys over Reef to Reef in Flower Mound, TX got me a very good deal ($300 with starfire glass).

You all have beautiful scape tank there. Wish mine look half as good. This is one of my 5 gal with my non-PRL higher end CRS.

Please excuse the bad camera phone pic. The last one is a video. Click to watch

Almost forgot.. I am getting a bunch of these from the tank above. Enough to start keeping them separately.

Saltwater shrimp are probably going to be the thing that drive me back to saltwater tank--so I vote YES!

Neatfish...I love those peppermint shrimp (looks like). They were great reef clean up crew members for my reef. I kept dozens. They weren't cheap but they had personality.

On the freshwater side. I have an established 20 gallon that I am growing my hatched angelfish in. They will be ready to move in a week or so- that I think will now be a shrimp tank!!!

Interesting tank setup you have there sayurasem. Any particular reason why it's outside like that? That's a first for me to see

Re: Post your shrimp tanks!

Ok..... I am also a Shrimp addict!

This is my 2.5 gallon salt tank.



This is my buddy who lives there.



This if my desktop cherry tank.



And my work in progress..... Breeding tanks.



The top tank is a 15, but i just got my second custom made three section tank today, so this will be taken down this weekend.



This is the bottom tank.... Custom acrylic...about 22 gallons total.



I really like the way this tank looks at night.... I can't wait to get the second one setup.



By next week I should have 6 different Shrimp and orange dwarf Mexican crayfish.

Nice tanks! Are you using Amazonia and Africana in the first one?

Thanks Brian!

It's because landlord doesn't want any aquarium inside the house. I have fitted styrofoam on 3 sides (left, right, and back wall) for temperature stability. And another wall and roof styrofoam because it was raining. $15 total.

Can't beat $300 a month rent!
