Cherry Shrimp 75g


So I'm still in debate about what to put in my 75 gallon... One of my options I had considered was a tank just for Cherry Shrimp. But that's a BIG tank for just cherries lol Would be easy to maintain I'm sure

What do you guys think?

I had a community 75 gal with cherries, only moderately planted. I put in about 30-50 when I started it up, and I pulled out over 300 a year and a half later when I tore it down.

Amanos and ghosts are much bigger than RCS, my amanos are safe from my angel but it ate all my RCS in that tank within a month.

I'm definitely not mixing Angels and Shrimp together lol My tank will be dedicated solely to cherry shrimp

I have a 40L shrimp only tank. I like it. It is a very low maintenance tank that I enjoy quite a bit. It is a mixture of cherries and wild types.

Yeah that does sound pretty good. I'm really liking the idea of a 4 foot cherry shrimp only tank.

Bump.... Would a canister filter be alright for cherry shrimp in a 75?

I use sponge filters only with added air stones in my shrimp tank as the shrimp love to pick on the filters. A canister filter sounds like overkill to me but I'm sure people have done it successfully. Just make sure you put a pre filter on the intake so baby shrimp can't get sucked in.
