I've just recently gotten into shrimp, and I'm loving them! I looked through the entire thread trying to get ideas for my forthcoming shrimp tank.
My current red cherries are in a community tank that will soon be stocked with gourami and tetra, so that's why I'm making a separate 10 gal for my shrimp colony. Currently there are just kuhli loaches and one farlowella in the community tank.
Plants: Water sprite (floating), Anubias, Java Fern, Dwarf sagittaria, Pygmy chain sword, Rotala, and Undulated crypt. Since I took this picture I've also added java moss and subwassertang to the large driftwood.
Lighting: single T8 6500k 24" bulb
Ferts: Comprehensive once weekly + fish poop
One of my females. This was taken the day after they were introduced. She's now berried.
My farlowella and some of my males in the background.
Some of these pictures show an uncovered intake, but that's now been taken care of with a small sponge. I've been furiously reading threads around here and am eager to become an invert-keeper as well as a fishkeeper!
