10 Gallon Shrimp Tank


Well, the 2.5G became a 10G, but the 2.5G will be set back up shortly as I will need it for shrimp coming.

This one will be all RCS for now.
10 Gallon - Petsmart special
CaribSea Sand Substrate (need to add one more bag)
Tetra 20i Internal Tank Filter
27W 6700K PC DeskLamp
Driftwood
2 Rocks
Anubias Coffolia

I hope to get betting some moss locally to put on the rocks soon. I know I have shrimp coming the end of next week, but have a trade up trying to get some sooner.

Tank is already cycled and just waiting for fauna.

Okay, added christmas moss, subberwassertank, and maybe some will moss. Unfortunately some duckweed also, but I can work on clearing that over time.

Always open for recommendations. I'm going to try and get some better rocks tomorrow. I think I spotted some on the way home.

Some people like having duckweed in their shrimp tanks as the roots are a good place for young to hang out and infusoria to grow. Just something to think about.

I'm not a fan of duckweed at all, but at least it stays up top where it's easy to grab. Of course, you always miss that 1 leaf.....

That's why I don't want duckweed. Wow it's been a long time since I updated this thread. I've moved 3 times since starting this (long story) and just added shrimp back in.... I think April.

So, time for pictures. Tank needs cleaned as I just moved/rearranged but I need to get some cheese cloth to cover the gravel vac before I do so I don't suck up the young ones.

Disclaimer - all pictures taken with my Droid 2 5 MP camera - at least it is a camera since my good one went missing.
