Following on from some of the guys on UKAPS, setting a fine example, I've decided to setup my own shrimp only tank. I have re-scaped my 27 litre Aqua 40 "cube", re-using the existing Eco Complete, which I doubt has any nutrients left in it, mainly because it's a dark substrate.
27 litre Aqua40 (approx 30cm cube, bow front)
18w retrofitted T5 PC
Eheim Pro 2222 ([email protected]
Java Fern "needle"
Cherry shrimp (arriving soon)
My intention is to dose TPN+ and Easy Carbo. Lighting is from an 18w Interpet PC. I need to change the tube as it's using a "beauty" light which is pretty dull and un-inspiring. I've seen some on Lampspec which might do the trick.
Filtration will be from an Eheim 2222. Little bit under powered I think, but will do a good job for just shrimp
Anyhow, here's how it looks after some final planting and adding some more rock, and generally after more fiddling about yesterday eve:
I have some cherry shrimp arriving on Wednesday thanks to LondonDragon on UKAPS
