Not sure how long this particular journal will last, but we'll see
I happened to have a 10g leftover and empty, so decided to set it up as a shrimp tank. I went through a long process of at first thinking I'd do shellies, then a single dwarf cichlid, then endlers ...
Since its set up on the one side of my comfy chair, with the fairly-busy-with-fish 40 breeder on the other side ... I decided I wanted something different to look at on that side, and thus decided on shrimp
I don't have a whole lot budgeted for this tank ... and am using all leftovers that I've scrounged out of my fish closet. So, it has become more of a frankentank and less of a themed shrimpie tank.
The challenge is going to continue to be able to set up and evolve this tank with mostly castoffs and freebies.
I am not sure I like the hardscape at this point though. And I still need to buy a pre-filter for the intake.
