Well, I don't have a dedicated shrimp tank, I would like to see yours! Please list plants, hardscape, and shrimp. Any tank. I have heard of Berta bowls with one RCS to massive 80 gallon colonies! Did I mention I want pics? Thanks!

Here's me 20 gallon yellow neo / CRS tank. I have java moss, peacock moss on driftwood, cholla log, subwassertang, little bit of guppy grass, and 2 x 20 gallon sponge filters. I'm changing out the substrate next week to fluval shrimp stratum. And it's magical. It's an upside down tank, lol

Future 16 gallon bowfront colony of RCS. No ADA, Amano, Iwagumi, none of that. I'll be starting a journal soon. Also, that's organic garden soil in the bottom which will be capped with black diamond.

Are the orange or yellow shrimps the type that are called pumpkins?

In NYREPs 2nd and 3rd photos, the water was so clear, it looked like there was no water in the tank.
Amazing!
