75 Gal - Painted Fire Red Shrimp ONLY

Hi all, long time lurker here

So here's my 75 gal dedicated to cherry shrimp only. I don't know why, but one day I just felt the urge to put some tiny shrimps into a big ass tank.

Anyways here it is. Very simple setup with simple plants. No dosing, no ferts, no Co2. Just plain beach sand + lights on a timer. Water param......UNKNOWN

As for shrimp, there are only 30 or so. Why so few? Because painted fire reds are expensive!!

Wait a couple of months and probably be 100 shrimpers in a big tank.

Should get the OTO a few OTO buddies. They do like to mingle and follow each other around.

Heres an update, not much change. Plants growing slowly.

Turns out the tds of the tank was 450+ from my previous tank water! I brought it down to 260 eventually, will slowly bring it down some more.


Shrimps being shrimps....also I fed them a slice of banana :0

They are both Hygrophila. I think Hygrophila corymbosa? Jungle val is the one in the back on the right

What range does the TDS need to be to get the Fire Reds to reproduce successfully?

180 g. low tech w/ wild South American cichlids, corydoras eques, and African Congo riverine tetras.
60 g. low tech w/ F1 Alenquer discus pair and wild Altum Angels
30 g. low tech - Breeding tank
30 g. low-tech Shrimp tank - wild-type neocaradina and Caridina cf. babaulti "Zebra"
9 gallon Shrimp tank- Caridina cantonensis ("Golden Bee's"). *Tank still at cycling stage.

I think lower than 260 based on what I've read on forums
