obsessed with shrimps

I'm obsessed with shrimps after i saw those awesome pictures posted by users at the forum, I always wanted to get myself some shrimps. I remodeled my old hermit crab tank after the crabs all died out. Before I started I spend 100$ just for equipment like Sponge filter, Gravels, Flourish Excel, Aquasafe plus, Fluval Co2 20, Florescent hood, Air pump. Spend another 100$ for Cherry shrimps, Ghost Shrimps, Crystal Red Shrimps, 2x Marimo Moss, W/ 4x Ottos. Then I spend another 160$ Ordering from two different sellers over at the forum for Shrimps and Plants. 360$ spend in total
====================>
Now here's the thing, I want to make another shrimp tank. Fluval Ebi Tank or Fluval Edge Tank. I have read all the reviews & had some mixed feelings about this. I am running two 10 gallons tanks already, was debating if a nano tank will look fancy enough to stand out in my room.

I think the Edge tank would look "cooler" and attract more attention because of its unique design. Also, the Ebi comes with a lot of gear that typically isn't quality enough for your average shrimp enthusiast, although it's great for a beginner who is just getting started. For that reason, I would go with an Edge, but it's entirely up to you.

I moss be in love

The edge would be a nightmare if you ever get serious about shrimp keeping and decide to sort culls from the keepers, thanks to the tiny access hole.

I am loving the ebi but with a HOB filter (see the planted HOB thread). It is definitely an eye catching tank. I probably wouldnt get the fluval co2, its really expensive to be constantly refilling.

The fluval CO2 is worthless. I have 2 that I no longer use. One came with the EBI and one I bought before I got serious about co2.
