Hello this is my first post(i've been lurking for awhile ) and i had a few questions about which tank i should go with, im looking into getting ether a Aquarius 5 Rounded 5-Gallon Aquarium Kit or a Tetra Cube Aquarium Kit, 3-Gallon as a low tech shrimp tank, i've been looking into starting a shrimp tank for a while and if this goes right then im going to setup my dad's 55 gallon tank as a shrimp tank but first i wanted to start on a small scale

But the Main question is which one is good for a shrimp tank or if theres any others on amazon for around the same Price i have a $30 gift card but can add a few bucks if i can get a better tank


Thanks .
Gavin

If i were you i'd save the gift card and get a 10 gallon starter kit at wall mart. Both those tanks don't have lights strong enough to grow plants. I know you can have shrimp without plants but i think they breed and fare better with them. The 10 gallon kit comes with a hood that you can put CFL's in that are capable of growing plants plus the filter is included. You might need to buy a heater but that depends on your room temp.
