I think almost any fish with eat shrimp, even if it's just some of the babies. Some are just more shrimp safe than others.

What kind of water do you have?

Thanks is not a hard thing to do the secret it's one layer at the time Do one thin layer let it dry then do a second if you did the first vertical next is horizontal and you'll be filling all the spots if you have a backyard or somewhere else outside to do it do it outside ( girlfriend almost killed me when she saw I was in the dinning table :) ) but it was cold outside and that won't let it dry

About water I think you're talking about what type of water will be so it will be tropical fresh water :)

Ok all the rainbow that I've seen locally are suggested for bigger tanks maybe I'll do a shrimp tank only not sure

Texas gets cold?

Sorry, my fault for not being more clear. I meant pH and hardness of your tap water. I know plenty of fish you could use for a 10 gallon community, sure others on here be able to add to it.

most leds work for low light plants.it is when you get into the medium light-high light that you need to worry about the color temp etc.

The I guess I'll go into the fluorescent cause the African green hygro is the kind of plant that the stronger the lights the more colorful it gets red root floaters too i have two single bulbs lights that I use for my 2.5 gallons I'll try to get a double bulb light if I can't the I'll go for what I have


This weekend im getting substrate and may fill it up as well so I can start cycling process I want to add a decoration but haven't find anything I wanted a Buddha to place close to the tree looking driftwood but not sure yet I'll make it a red cherry shrimp tank and I see if I can add a betta without risking shrimp not any betta I want a white half moon so it will look awesome in that black background

Does anyone have any experience with sponge filters in a 10 gallons ? I started to consider it to avoid a lot of movementshrimp got get sucked by filter
