Just as the title says, post some pictures of your shrimp aquariums. Include tank details. Main idea of this thread is that people looking into creating their own shrimp tank can take a look at yours and what equipment you used.

Thanks, have fun all!

I'll Start...

Inhabitants-
Cherry Red Shrimp, approx 50-70 shrimp
Ramshorn Snails, started with one from a plant I have been removing them and in about 2 months i still have 30-50 of them!:help:

Plants-
Unknown plant
Java Fern
Java Moss, tied to some natural sea sponges

Equipment-
5.5g all-glass aquarium
Sponge filter, air driven
Stealth heater
Plastic 5.5g hood with 13watt 6500k
Magnet algae scrapper
Prime water conditioner
Moon Sand substrate

Ohh he's just giving you a hard time:hihi: :hihi: .

For the moss It is most likely Taiwan, Christmas, or Spiky<- My bet is that it's spiky. Close up shot Please?

I'll get some hideous pictures later tonight... But don't try to copy my setup... You will regret it for life:hihi:

Untill I move more of my Vivs (I'm reducing), I think I'm going to be a Planted Tank Wannabe.

That's amazing T!!!!!


Tainted Glory, do you know if the pantyhose is enough? I think if the flow is still strong it will suck the shrimp onto the pantyhose and keep them from being able to free themselves.
