Yes, other than just a bowl of water, sand, stones, macro algae, and shrimps there's nothing but a 50W titanium heater and an electronic thermometer in there. This Summer, I'll remove the heater and I'll have to start using blinds so as not to overheat it.

Are they eating the Spectrum food in the last pictures? Mine don't pile up on the Spirolina I give them. Maybe I should try something else? I do have other Bee shrimp foods but I think these guys don't eat protein based foods. What do you think?

They're not picky, they eat whatever I put in their bowl but I don't feed them very often.

Default Update

Just took these photos, they were in my wife's classroom for awhile and are back on my desk for the Summer. I feed them occasionally and top off their bowl with R/O water and that's it.

No, I think I'd have to have a setup like yours in order for that to happen but mine is ultra low maintenance which is one of the things I like about these super shrimp.
