Post your shrimp tanks!

It's not a shrimp only tank, but the tetras and ottos don't seem to bother any of my RCS. When I first introduced shrimp into the new tank, I made sure to feed the fish a lot of flake food. Then I turned the lights off for 24+ hrs and I introduced the shrimp. I have a ton of baby shrimp in the tank, and my Tetras do not seem to eat them. I constantly see the baby shrimp growing bigger and bigger so everyone's got to get along. Click image for larger version

What kind of lightning is that? I've never seen that type before and it's unique for cube tank.

This is my "mostly shrimp tank". It's got roughly 2 dozen fire reds, 5 AA-grade CRS, 1 amano, and in the way of fish, 6 celestial pearl danios, and 2 otos.

I had 3 super tiger shrimp, but they kamakazi'd their way to a dry and slow death on my carpet. I think the water was too acidic for there comfort, since I have that Netlea Lambo in there... Or, at least that's the only thing I've come up with to explain it.

Is that coral? Might not be the ideal decor for rcs. Your ph could easily sky rocket. May be ok for cardinals or sulawasi shrimps

Very interesting indeed but you can't watch them though $300 a month for your own room?

Yeah my own room, utilities, water, etc included. Sometimes they give me extra rice to eat. I do miss falling asleep by looking at my tank on the bed... but now I can enjoy a cup of coffee and a ciggarette while watching my shrimp feeding at night

Although I have to start worrying by the end of fall because temperature can reach 110F in the mid of summer.
