This is my new 2.5G shrimp-only tank that I keep next to my 10G tank at the office:
I plan to eventually move some adults over to the 10G once they're big enough that the Cardinals won't bother them. I am hoping to get them to breed in this tank, but have zero experience in doing so.
The driftwood is a perfect fit for this tiny tank. (thanks a lot AzFishKid!) The Java Fern and freshly added Anubias Minia seem to attract a lot of shrimp to their roots.
I should have some moss coming in next week to cover that rock and maybe part of the driftwood. I also have a couple more small rocks that I may experiment with.
12 x 6 x 8 (standard 2.5G)
Soil Master Select - Charcoal
1 x 15W CF in metal dome fixture
Hagen Elite "Stingray" 5G submersible
added foam to the back so tiny shrimp can't crawl inside
25ish Cherry Red Shrimp
"The Rock" - kinds like it uncovered, but i need moss in there
After adding today's stems (perhaps a bit large for this 2.5)
The little guys acclimating (Epicfish sells AWESOME shrimp, not one DOA)
Some of the little guys hanging out under the fern and driftwood
So far I really like the shrimp, now I just have to hope I don't screw this up.
