Like the title says, in an absolute noob when it comes to shrimp. Ive keep your average ghost shrimp in my main 29 gallon with varying luck, but now after seeing all of the amazing shrimp tanks, I want in.
Im thinking that i need to get a whole new tank instead of putting it in my 29 gallon or betta tank because one, they weren't designed for shrimp what so ever, and two, my fish (AHEM, dirty little, but beloved Gouramis)
will most likely harass them. So, what im thinking in terms of my a tank is the Fluval EBI Shrimp Kit. To me it looks like a great value for only about $90 on Amazon, plus it comes with almost everything i need for a shrimp setup besides the water and shrimps themselves. I will make it a densely planted tank, and i definitely have the skills for that in bigger tanks, but never tried it in a smaller tank
So pretty much what im asking all you shrimp experts out there is if the Fluval tank i mentioned is up to par with your standards, or if i should ditch it and go a whole other route. I will also need some suggestions on what special equipment or plants I need for shrimp health other than specialized shrimp food and Java Moss.
Im very excited to finally be getting into shrimp keeping and breeding and I hope to learn a lot from the experience
