What kind of cycling have you been doing with your tanks?

Even where there is no filter, it is important to have a bacterial colony built up.

I wouldn't really recommend more than 5-10 shrimp in something like this without a filter.

Interesting start so far.

My other suggestion is when you get lighting right, you don't usually need to dose smaller tanks with ferts.
