kuro I had PFR shrimp survive in a moss only tank, no filter or substrate. They breed non stop. I also kept one PFR with few chili rasbora in a Walstad bowl and they love it. Everyone survive in that bowl for about a year before I tore it down and move them to another tank.

PS: Your cylinder about 4 time bigger then my bowl so you can probably keep a breeding colony of shrimp in there.

Shrimp won't live in an unfiltered tank?!

I want to put shrimp in my cylinder but I was told they wouldn't live in it because it's unfiltered. pH is 7.5, hardness is 10, and nitrates are 5.0ppm and ammonia 0. I do a 40 percent water every 2 days with dechlorinated water that sits open for 24 hours. And it's well planted. Any thoughts would help. Thanks!

javajive1981 Had to take this down because we needed the spare room for a nursery. I still have the cylinder. Will prob set it up again when the kids are bigger and we have the space.

jpappy789 Very nice! Love the "tree" look with the moss. Think I'm going to try a setup like this again soon.


....and I just noticed this was bumped.

Thanks. Its getting there. I've trimmed the plants early to bush them out a bit.

Thank you. I was going to get a bowl but i saw this and thought it would be a bit different to do something taller.

Re: Walstad shrimp cylinder

Really pleased with my parameters. Shrimp seem happy. I never see the MTS i hope they are ok! The hygrophila is nearly emergent. I put the LED back in because the plants seem to grow faster. There is still a little fuzz after water changes but nothing to bad.
