I pulled the anacharis out of one of my tanks and threw it in this vase, do you think it would work as a shrimp vase? Many of the stems have developed roots, I was thinking of planting them in potting mix topped with sand, maybe a small moss rock? It's not very big, maybe 1/2 gallon... is that big enough? If not, I can easily pick up a bigger bowl or vase. I am not interested in breeding shrimp, just having a few in there (how many?) to watch if it would be a suitable environment for them. It seems like ghost shrimp and cherry shrimp are the "easy" types, is that correct?
From what I have read, most shrimp seem to like warmer temperatures but those were breeding guides... can they thrive in cooler water if I have no desire to breed them? I don't have a heater for it, but I could most likely get a mini one if needed. Unheated, the temp would probably be around 68 (my house is kept at 70).
Any info would be greatly appreciated My only experience with shrimp was with ghost shrimp and it was very brief, because my betta decided they were a good snack...
