Alrighty, as anyone who's read my posts lately knows, I'm getting a 50 gallon in about a week.
I was thinking about tetras, and that would be nice.. but now I'm playing around with the idea of a shrimp farm.
Yellow shrimp, some bee shrimp (red orchids if I can find them! ), and maybe some other species thats compatable with both. Saves room for future thai micro crabs. Eh, thailand is southeast asia.
Also, it seems southeast asian shrimp like lower PH water, even if only for breeding.
Would probably go with the Diana Walstead technique like I did with my 5G, and just fool around with the lighting before I get a good balance.
(no good windows)
Would it be a waste?
I feel like it kinda is because I have 2 10 gallon tanks that are completely empty and in storage I could set up as shrimp farms.... And use the 50G for tetras like I was originally planning...
