I don't think it's in series. It looks like one for each tank. I see that there is no UGF and the soil is thin.

@sayurasem: yeah Shortfin is correct. But that's the old setup. Now I only use under gravel filter and sponge filter. It takes longer to cycle but still be able to achieve the same result.

Great thread--there are some beautiful tanks here.

Here is my ultra-low tech, low maintenance shrimp tank. It's a 3 gal. Mr. Aqua, soon to be upgraded to a 10x10 cube. I keep it on my desk at work.

I have sold out of this tank over 500 shrimp in the last 4 months. Previously I kept cherry and tiger shrimp in a 15 gal., then a 40 gal. tank. I estimate that in those larger tanks I had >1000 of each at any given time. Unfortunately, during a tank reorg. I moved about 300 of each into a 10 gal. Metaframe tank. I lost them all to some sort of poisoning. I posted about it here:

Anyone ever obtain vintage aquariums?

@Peter, what is that plant on your pre-filter sponge?

The substrate is Fluval Shrimp Stratum.

The plant on the filter intake sponge is cladophora--the same algae that makes up moss balls. I have it in a couple of my tanks. It looks really nice covering coconut shells.

Nothing scary. No more difficult than any other shrimp, and in many respects, easier.
