Ok, so a friend of mine who is a breeder gave me 4 of these little guys to take care of. Says if I can keep them alive and well for a month, he'll give me 20 more to care for and hopefully breed. Right now, they are living in a little acrylic cube, about 10g I think.
Chucked in 2 rocks, a piece of wood, moss, and some stem plants.
It was also a gift from my friend. It came with lighting, but I'm not sure what the lighting is-- it seems to be a small compact flourescent bulb, I think it looks like a 13w. If so, it must have a great build in reflector because the stem plants pearl daily. I'll take a photo under the hood later.
I'd eventually like to make this a display tank and place it on one of those stands that they sell for cubes these days, so I want to know how well plants can grow with it. Watching the stem plants development to take a verdict.
Anyone want to chime in with hints on caring for the shrimp, or making an aquascape that shows them/cares for them well? I don't have much experience with shrimp . . .
