Too much current for cherry shrimp?
I've got a 5 gallon tank that is well matured and fully planted that I'd like to house cherry shrimp in. Right now, I just have a little hob filter that was fine for the betta that used to live there, but I've got an unused Eheim 2213 canister (116 gph, rated for 66 gallon tank) that I'm wondering would be ok to use. I've heard you can't have too much filtration, but would that create too much turbulence/current for shrimp? Would a lily pipe or one of those circular outlet pipes be good to break up the flow? I've never kept shrimp before but have been reading quite a bit and I think I've got a good setup, but would still like to step up filtration.
