how many shrimp is a good number to start out with?
Are you using fertilizers?
Those help though some arent shrimp safe so look into it beforehand!

I started off with 10 snowball shrimp and they seem to be doing ok. With my cherries, I just kept buying more so I think I ended up with around 40 to begin with X)

yes and have been for the life of both my tanks, pretty much have had shrimp in the community the whole time also

Thanks just a few! hahah I will probably just get ghost shrimp cause they are so cheap and i get get them 10 minutes from my house and could wait for a $5 coupon and get them for free

Hey jrury, If you are still lookin for a filter. Redsea makes a micro HOB filter for aquariums less than 10 gallons. I think it cost me around 15-20 bucks for it online.

Also that light should be okay. You can even purchase daylight spectrum CFLs for it
