Lost Temple R.I.P.
The Weeping Dragon Continued in new Journal
I started collecting parts and ideas for the 60p. All along it was to be a planted tank to tap into my inner Amano...until I got infected....by shrimps. I literally had EVERYTHING bought for a jungle tank, but plans change. I even sold a new Solar I because I don't want an algae tank because no CO2 will be used.
Hybrid shrimp breeding tank that balances shrimp breeding with aesthetics. ShrimpTech is a combination of a shrimp breeding tank and a planted tank with the priority on the shrimp. A pure shrimp breeding tank only has wood & moss and no rooted plants. A pure shrimp breeder would also have 80%-90% open space to easily sort and catch shrimp. These are the main differences between a hybrid and pure shrimp tank. I love collecting and growing plants too much to run a pure breeder tank. (I've tried...)
