Shrimp tank in Progres
Hello all so i have this small 3 gallon tank 18inch 6inch 6inch
I had always thought about having a shrimp tank but something always came up.
So i am going to start the tank in august but i like to plan ahead.
i want to get about 10 cherry shrimp(best i can tell so far) and a sponge filter.
as for plants will one with only java moss do? or should i add some anubias as well?
Lighting is it req? and if so how much needed?
substrate no clue(some say soil some say gravel some say both)
and lastly feeding
Thanks in advance

You can only do java moss but you shouldalso get some kind of other plant, hornwort is very hardy and is low light, anubias is alittle bit higher lights but it should work fine, yes lighting is required you should at least get incadescent growth bulbs, walmarts sells them but don't know if there are walmarts there, you will be fine with gravel, the shrimp will do fine on flakes and whatever micro and macro organisms grow on the plants.A true aquarist knows what it feels like to step on a sharp piece of gravel
