i assume by craped tanks you mean like a 1 liter bowel? or those small cups? yea nothing should live in those
but i think a 6 gallon should be fine, especially with live plants in it. Im usually against anything smaller than 10 gallons, but as long as its heavily planted then i dont mind them much at all.
Ive ahd glass or ghost shirmp b4 and ive had alot of problems with them (eating and attacking fish) but mainly with the larger ones which could possibly be prawns...
but ghost shirmp, cherry shrimp, and amano shrimp should be ok.
Thank you... :)
I'm thinking about live plants, but it seems difficult. I've started trying to grow live plants in my turtle tank, and some of them are doing okay and some are not... so I'm still trying to find the balance on that. I'd love to plant this bookshelf tank, but I'm kind of afraid to :) From the article I'm reading on cycling, it sounds like planting would really help, though... do you have any advice on planting a small tank like this?
I'll see if I can find cherry shrimp and amano shrimp locally, to watch their activity at the store, and also do some research online.
Another stupid question--could I use some water from my turtle/guppy tank to help cycle the new tank? The water would probably include some baby snails, too...
I just read: A Beginner's Guide to the Freshwater Aquarium Cycle
