New shrimp tank

Just started a new shrimp tank of about 100L. It's just a psychological thing as I didn't needed a new one but felt like starting fresh in shrimpery with a larger tank, the old one (40L) I plan to repurpose and move everything to the new one.

Due to lack of shrimp variety in my country I'm limited to just RCS, Rili, Amano and CRS shrimps.

There are also Cardinal shrimps available but don't have the conditions required for them.

Planning on keeping all of these varieties under one roof.

Light seems too much for now with two 24W T5HO lamps above it. Filtration is being provided by a reverse underground filter and a HOB.

New shrimp tank

Tank looks great. I wouldn't mix Cherry Shrimp and Rili as they are related and will interbreed. Some add Fire Red Cherry Shrimp to a Rili line to get a darker red, but it's something that needs to be monitored

That tank really tied the room together

Those white striped shrimps are in fact CRS. I have Rili in another thank. There is no white in them. I think they are grade A. Not sure, It's the first time I try them.

And a short clip. Poorly done with the phone. The dead dried shrimp is an RCS, had another one bail on me shortly after.

Curiously enough, I haven't spotted one dead CRS. There are no other deaths. I'm thinking it had to do with the fact they were adult and also suspect they were old.

Here's the clip:
