The cherry tank! Low tech 10g

After loosing a shipment of cherry shrimp to my tetra in my 29g. I decided to use my old 10g as a cherry shrimp breeder/habitat.

Not much to it, just two 15w fluorescent lights.

Plants are from my 29g java fern, dwarf hairgrass, Italian Val, and dwarf sag.

Here it is let me know what you think or any advice you have! Thank you.

one dose of the fenbendazole should be enough. I have the same problem earlier this year and that's what I did.

+1

Fenbendazole, 0.1g of active ingredient per ten gallons. Order Panacur-C (yellow box) from Amazon and dissolve half a packet in a cup of water then dose your ten gallon. I just did it last week and it knocked out the planaria with absolutely no harm to anyone else.

10 gallon acrylic fw planted. 6 neon tetras, 1 GBR, 3 Amano shrimp, 2 nerites, 1 BNP, Eheim Classic 2211, Finnex Planted+ 17W LED, Hydor ETH 200W In-Line Heater, InkBird temp controller.

10 gallon aquaponic setup, hydroponic basil, 8 HET rasboras, RCS, red ramshorn snails.
