Post your shrimp tanks!


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.

NYREPS your tanks my me smile! GORGEOUS! I'll post mine in a bit but I'll just warn ahead of time...they aren't meant to be pretty...they're meant to be practical (as in for my purposes...so I can catch the buggers!)

Here are my current ones, again, I tried pretty and scaped and it just didn't work out for my needs So here is crappy and functional (for me!) First tank is a 3 gallon that houses CRS, CBS, Goldens and Taiwans. SEcond tank is Mr Aqua 12g Long Tibee tank. 3rd tank is our son's crayfish tank with about 50 or more PFRs and Supremes in there (though some are reverting back to crappy cherries on that white sand).

I won't clean this thread up a second time.

Keep it respectful or find another outlet, folks.

This is a family-friendly forum and you are expected to treat every person on this forum with respect whether you like them or the tanks they keep.

You don't have to be an adult but you're expected to act like one on this forum.
