    Even imperial gallons (equating to just under 7 litres) is a bit small.

    I'd happily grow moss in it though
    I kind of agree with this - just because you've seen setups like this doesn't mean its the right thing to do and maintaining good water quality is harder the smaller the tank is - toxins can build up quickly & kill those shrimp. You would need to test your water very often.
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT
    Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in
