10 gallon shrimp tank help
I have a 10 gallon tank just sitting around, and I was thinkning of turning it into a shrimp only tank.
Here's the equipment that I have:
Walmart special HOB filter
Whatever cheap flourescent fixture that came with the tank.
I plan on keeping RCS in there to start with.
A small piece of driftwood
Any other small low tech plants I think of.
What kind of substrate should I use? I was thinking a black substrate would look cool, but I don't want to be hassled by sand flying everywhere.
Will the HOB be sufficent filtration? Its an aquatech that uses carbon cartridges lined by a mesh. I was thinking of sticking a sponge over the inlet to protect any baby shrimp.
Is there anything I'm not thinking of that I would need?
