5.5G Nano Shrimp Tank

I?ve always liked keeping shrimp, unfortunately after beginning to work with apistos I learned the hard way that you can?t keep both together for long. I found a 5.5g tank in my closet I used to have running for quarantine so I decided to start it up as a shrimp tank. I went to a local fish store and picked up a few stones but they had them so cheap literally $1 a lb for seryou Stones!! Also picked up a bag of fluval shrimp stratum. Scaped and filled today. I?m running an aqua clear 30 to seed the tank. Let me know why you guys think

I'd love to know what store too, it sounds like we're in the same area and I could use some decent hardscape.

It?s in San Diego it?s called pet zone. Most shops around here rarely carry these type of stones. I went back the other day to get more and it turns out someone made a mistake and it?s actually 2.99/lb still a good price considering how difficult it is to find and shipping sometimes cost as much as the stones lol.

I had derimmed this tank but it bowed a little and decided to just throw on the brace back on. Maybe too much stones lol

Awesome! That's still not a bad deal, especially for being able to pickup immediately and without shipping costs. I'll have to check them out, thanks for the tip!
