    YEAH!ok so my mom will finally let me get another tank but it's going to be a small or medium size pet keeper from petco and I'm going to breed ghost shrimp to feed my crawfish oh and i want to put in some local plants or some low light plants and i want to also have some type of filter i have a air pump so it has to work off that any diy sponge filter ideas preferably under $8 bucks? plant ideas? tank mates snails or something maybe? I'm free to ideas and suggestion.

    I'd research breeding ghost shrimp first. As far as I understand, most types of ghost shrimp require brackish water to complete their life cycle, and it's much, much more complicated than just adding a bit of table salt to the water.
    If you are really set on feeding your cray with live foods, maybe go find a pond with some scuds (gammarus) in it? Those guys will breed fast and in fresh water.

    I have breed them before in freshwater the reason people say they need brasckish is they need microscopic food that is only in naturally in brackish tank.

    how many gallons is this new tank you are getting? 5? 10? etc

    that would determine the kind of filter you can rummage together.
    Current tanks:
    37G FW - 3 Pearl Gourami, 4 Black Mollies, approximately 20+ Molly Fry, 5 Assassin Snails | 10G Planted FW - 14 Molly Fry, rocks, DW and an Anubias Nana - journal

    ok so never mind my mom changed her mind when we were at petco so no shrimp tank but she said I could up grade my tank. at petco I got some aponogeton, onion plant, and water lily bulbs and I'm doing a incubating period thing I saw online it's were you put them in a unsealed zip lock bag with a wet paper towel so you can tell which ones are duds so you don't ruin your tank water.

    the incubation only really works with aponogetons, as far as I've heard. just a visual inspection of the bulbs should be
    enough to distinguish the living from the dead.

    ok so how do you tell if there dead or not? the other bulbs are onion plant/crinum thaianum, and water lily/ nymphaea sp. what do I do with these they are in there with the aponogeton/aponogeton ulvaceus.
