Hello! I wanted to create a small planted shrimp tank for my husband's office. I was thinking around 5 gallons- Something small so it can sit on his desk. I was thinking RCS, since we have had luck keeping them. (They are so fun and active!) My plan was to pick up a kit tank this weekend and start it cycling so I can put it in his office for his birthday at the end of October.)
Does any one have any suggestions for small kit tanks? Specifically that would work well with shrimp (thinking lights and filtration). I was looking at a Fluval Chi- but unsure how the filtration works and what the quality would be. I don't want any shrimplets getting sucked into the filter! It seems so cheap at $59 - it is tempting.
Thanks for your help!!
