This is such a beautiful thread. It's too bad to see it disappear. I am working on starting up a shrimp tank, trying to make do with what I already have. This thread has a lot of good ideas to help me know where to start.

If you drill holes in the wood in strategic locations (cracks, notches, etc.), it should allow the water to soak to the core. That should allow it to sink.

Thank you very much! That's why I started it, so that others and also I could get ideas. I personally think it should be stickied, but, ya know, that's just me.

Cool tank JerSaint

That giant light fixture make the 20L looks small. Why the extra light dome?

I have couple giant Amanos too. One is berried with hundreds of eggs for 4 months already.

Right now my temp in/out tubes are attached to the dome light. I have a LED spotlight in the dome that is hopefully enough to establish my Styrogene Repens. Thanks for the compliment!

RIP RCS bowl/vase tank. One night I woke up to shattered glass, a wet floor, and unhappy shrimp.

Some fabulous shrimp tanks here. I've got two 2.5 gallon tanks just waiting for shrimp. They've been running since Feb. One needs a bit of rescaping. I'll post pics if I can ever take decent ones.

My 20 long blue velvet tank.




Manzanita, cholla wood, Indian almond leaves, java moss, christmas Moss, subwassertang, various crypts, windelov java fern, anubias nana, and my favorite plant of all time, crinum calamistratum.

I had a ph battle with this tank for a few days but since correcting that problem, I've discovered 4 berried females and couldn't be happier.

For filtration, I have 2 sponge filters and an aquaclear with a pre-filter.

I wanted to keep the tank simple unlike my CRS tanks that are extremely crowded with plants.

I plan on moving my canister filter from my other 20 to this tank and upgrading the lighting. My other tanks are just not worth showing. My CRS tank needs a trim and my fire yellow tank is just a moss grow out tank. This one is easily my favorite shrimp tank.
