My 4 gallon marineland

Came home the other day and the lady pick me up a shrimp tank I've been wanting. Best part she got it from petco for 27 bucks . Here's a dirty water but my amazing drift wood I found today.

Looks like a nice start.

What are your plans for the think?

Hope you create a journal in the Tank Journals sub-forum so we can all follow along as your tank progresses.

Since you're new, Neos (Red Cherry Shrimp and the like) will be your best bet.

Starting a journal now can help you track changes in your tank as you set it up. Will also allow others to help you make sure your parameters are appropriate for the shrimp you plan to keep.

That is a nice piece of wood. It might look good to move it off center.

Well, the truth is I never shipped shrimp. Sold some locally and gave some away.
