Thread: Hardy's Dual Shrimp Tank Build
05-03-2013, 08:10 PM #41
Tanks are looking good man. For the wood, how about screwing one or two silicone suction cups to secure its position in whichever orientation you seem fit
For shrimp, amano shrimp, blue tiger shrimp and rcs come to mind but I have no experience when it comes to their breeding criteria.

I have the RCS already, they are great, should start selling soon
These are my finalists
Pumpkin or Sunkist Shrimp
Crystals (but doubtful since they seem to be fragile)
Some sort of tiger shrimp (either blue or orange)
This list seems to change daily other than the top 3. Really need to narrow it down and find 1 or 2 good suppliers
I'm gonna try to tweak the driftwood when I get home, has some decent rocks left over from other projects that I might be able to do something with

I have moved the driftwood around a tad, what I did was tilt it up towards the right back corner using the sponge filter as a support.
The upper tank the driftwood actually sticks out of the surface a tiny bit but I like it. Waiting for plants, checked the water yesterday and the one tank was at 0,0, (didn't check trates) but I know this was too early so I dosed again, the lower tank had ammonia and trites, so its coming along.
First time I've ever seen other colors than 0,0,0 on my test kit lol its weird! I have looked at a few shrimp types, one seller on aquabid sells different types I like, but its from taiwan and sells only wholesale amounts, like 100 shrimp for $90... I'm tempted to buy and just find a local store to take like 80 of them... maybe I can get a chunk of my money back...

I like your tank and crypts are a best choice to cover some of the filters. I like to see filters backpackwith shrim

Saw your post on my other journal and was very confused. Might just be a different language thing but few things have me confused
Crypts to cover filters?

Yea, a local guy that sells shrimp online told me that i really can't have anything but red cherries and sulawesi shrimp (very expensive)
he says our water params out of the tap are
I am determined to be able to have shrimp without needing to invest in a RO unit like he says
