I agree. I tried it many years ago and soon got fed up with the whole thing. I am just using the small CO2 bombs and it works out to about 1.50 Canadian per week. Less than the cost of a beer.

Two shrimp will not really do anything. You should have roughly 2 per gallon of water.
Also, don't feed them anything. They will eat algae and detritus.
