so when i get back from spain in december, im going to set my 5.5 gallon up as a betta home with the mopani wood thats already in there, some larger stones, and a lot of java moss (and my anubias if they're still around).
basically its' going to be awesome.
then i want to use my 2.5 to set up a shrimp tank with some rocks and more moss. then ill be able to have a never ending supply of shrimp to feed the betta.
he can have a healthy diet, i wont have to spend a fortune to do it, and ill have two awesome looking tanks.
just thought i would share my most recent ideas.
any suggestions on what kind of shrimp?

That sounds like a great idea!

I have never kept shrimp and we don't have them in the shops where I am, so I'm no help in that regard, but I found this site that has a lot of info. with pics. on the different species of shrimp and what water conditions they like etc. http://www.aquatic-store.com/en-us/dept_307.html... hope it helps!

Many members here keep shrimp, so I'm sure they will quide you on which ones are the best.

What species of shrimp do you plan on breeding?

im not really sure. i think cherry shrimp would be nice. they're smaller and have that beautiful red color.
