I've got a spare 10G, and, I'm just crazy for shrimp. I want a colony, a giant colony, that won't have to dodge any of my bettas, so I've decided to set up my empty tank.
Would I be able to do a NPT with shrimp? Or should I just stick to a sand based planted tank? I'm planning on keeping different kinds, cherries, cherries, and more cherries. And a few crystals. The LFS had some in stock today for the first time.
My main concern is that until now, the Ph in my other tanks has been low, I mean super low. It's dipped under 6.0 before.
I know shrimp are sensitive to ammonia and nitrate (trites?), but with enough plants I know the readings should be good for them (aside from the Ph).
Any advice? I'm thinking lots of cabomba, and moss for an ample food supply. I haven't decided on the rest of the plants, and unfortunately my choices are limited locally. I only plan on having shrimp, and some trumpet snails for aeration duty.
