Smile My new nano for reds shrimp

New 3.5 Gal cycled nano tank, currently has Supreme Red Shrimp and Painted Fire Red Shrimp only in this tank. Along with IAL, round pelia, christmas moss, nano driftwoods, cholla wood and a large marimos ball.

Moved shrimp from other temp tank to this offical tank for cour days now, so far are eating, swimming and playing well.

Thanks Merth, I do really hope they can breeds soon.

Actually, there isnt any CO2 use in this tank at all, I feel like not a fun stuff for shrimp. I do use Fluval soil for this kind of shrimp, help alot in Gh/pH as well. I use my tap water with prime (from backup bucket as always). The TDS about 150-170 at this time, I start change out water once per week at 10%, sometime I just do top off with my backup tap water as well. My tap water is soft enough like under 50 tds, so I do add a bit Salty Shrimp mineral GH to raise up a bit. No fert at all because I dont do any plant in it.

The light fixture is PICO with 10,000K bulb daylight. Moss seem like doing good without CO2 too. Time for light 3 hour from 12am-3am and 6am-9am. I use only 6 hours of light. Scare about 8 hrs which is too much.

I try to keep water parameter as simple as possible for this shrimp.

Looks great. If I was a shrimp I would love to camp in that area.

Wouldn't you like to beside the seaside?
