1 gallon RCS tank?

My wife gave me her old little 1 gallon beta tank. It's a corner style tank with just a light, and bubbler. I'm trying to find out if this would be suitable at all for a RCS tank, and if so, how I'd go about it?

I figure it's way too small but definitely wanted to check. Any ideas?

While you can technically house shrimp in a 1g, larger tanks are better as its easier to keep stable parameters (a must for shrimp).

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.

I keep five RCs in a .5 and they reproduce (babies go to larger tank) so you are good to go


All you do is change 100% of the water each week and don't put in any until its fully cycled

See the low tech forum for about a hundred gallon or less RCs tanks and bowls
