alot will depend on what kind of shrimp you want to keep. different shrimp need different water parameters. neos are great to start with and lots of different colors to choose from. or you can go with tiger shrimp not the fancy ones like oebt or black or red just regular tigers. low grade crystal reds are pretty easy and you can adjust water for them pretty well. if you need lower ph and want to try a-s grade crystals you can use cheap fluval shrimp stratum. my bag was a good one and takes the ph pretty low and has been doing so for just about a year. so i guess the first thing would be to pick what shrimp you want to try and then go from there on substrate but do get a pre filter sponge so shrimps dont get sucked into the intake of the filter and you really shouldnt need a heater for shrimp most of them like it pretty cool say 65-70 degreese
