I just picked up an Oceanic 40 gal tank (almost cube). I would like to create a planted shrimp tank and was wondering if it is too big for a shrimp tank? I am planning on having an AquaClear 50 or 70 as its only filtration?
Also, would a fluorite/sand substrate be good or just fluorite?
Actually, I think up to 600 shrimp could be okay. The aquaclear 50 may be a bit strong for the shrimplets though. Might want to cover the intake. Sand and fluorite would probably work but I am not a expert.
