    Cool My Dual 10s - QT and new Amano shrimp tank


    2 Not allowed!
    I have my 10 gal QT, an extra new 10 gal tank, an extra heater and I won a Tetra Whisper 10 HOB filter at our club raffle. I think this would be adequate for an Amano shrimp tank. All I need to buy is the light fixture. I have a spot for them in my kitchen where I will be able to see them from the living room.

    I need to build a stand for them (set side-by-side), with a place at the bottom for my cats' water bowls. Maybe start this weekend.......

    That's where I found the info to build the stands for my Dual 29s. Going to go the same route, using 2x4s instead of 2x6s for the upper and lower rectangles. I just need to adjust the size.

    I am excited about finally getting my Amano shrimp. With the tanks in the kitchen, which is on the east side of the house, they should stay cooler than the 29s on the west wall and within the temp range for the shrimp.

    Thanks, Rivers. I have 2 cats who love to splash water out of the bowls. Without something to hold the bowls down they can be overturned. I like the bowls placed where they are as I can see them from my chair in the living room and keep an eye on who's drinking how much water (possible kidney disease). They are all senior cats, ages 10-18.

    Yes, first time with shrimp of any kind. I wanted amanos for one of the dual 29s, but those tanks get too warm in the summer and I had to redo my stock list for both tanks.
