Is a 1 gallon safe for cherry shrimp
I just got "gifted" about 15 cherry shrimp and I had nothing to put them in but a 1 gallon fish bowl I had for a nursery when I used to breed guppies. I can't put them in my other tanks because one has a ghost knife and he'll make a snack of them in minutes.
So in this bowl I took some gravel/Eco complete and filled the bottom and some small plants and a drift wood piece with moss on it that came with them. I planted the plants and placed the wood and moss and then some water from their bag then slowly over 2 hours added tank water from my cycled tank.
The question is. Are they safe? Can this be a permenant solution? If I swap say a couple cups of water out a day with stable cycled tank water?
