You were probably one of the ones that i told about this project I dreamt of about a year ago haha.

Maybe in a far future. But i'll just be buying and hopefully breeding some for now. The shrimp rack was more of a thiing I always wanted haha.

Yea, i started a small one but even that, it was too much for me.

But it look like you are doing it right. Nice size room and great plants collection to boost ur start already. Really good progress.

Are there any specific shrimps you are planning to keeps? (Sorry if you answer it before, i didn't read it all.)

Ya I know. That sucks!

I plant on keeping a little bit of everything.

And whatever is the next biggest and greatest shrimp at the time haha.
I'm going let them cycle for like 2 months.
I'm in no rush on that part.
And great since I can grow moss out of them for now and leaves room in the 40b

Why do you have two sponge filters per tank? For easy cleaning? You should point the two outlets towards the far side of the tank to create some water movement!

Yup and why not? The more the better I might add corner filter I got to lol!

Ya I should. But believe me it moves some water! The air pump is so stronger!
It cloudy in the tanks because there so many air bubbles.

how many outlets is your air pump? i assume you have splits for it?

are you also going to fill up the water level more or leave it at that level?

Yea I'd like to see a picture of that setup. is the pump only driving the sponge filters in the shrimp tanks? I guess so since you dont' have sponge filters elsewhere :P

Bubbles cause a lot of water splashing when the bubbles pop haha.

Ya only the sponge filter for the rack.

Haha obviously I'm saying lowering the water levels so it doesn't splash high enough.
