Ok, so I have a TINY tank! (more like a jar) Its about 1.75 quarts, and its filled with water and sand. I can put some live plants in it.... I was just wandering if there are ANY inverts that can live in there?
will bamboo and ghost shrimp work? (I have my own heater system in my room to keep it at a constant temp. for the purpose of my fish)

Possibly ghost shrimp, but not bamboo shrimp. Bamboo shrimp are filter feeders, so they really need a good amount of water flow so they can catch drifting particles of food with their fan-like claws. I would only get two or three ghost shrimp for a container that small, and I would try to put some kind of really small sponge filter in there. I don't think you'd need a heater.

ok, thanks. I didn't realize how large bamboo shrimp got till I saw one in person! I decided to hold of on the shrimp for awhile tho cuz in one of my tanks I had a fluke worm problem, so I don't wanna get any inverts right this minute. Not till i know its completly cured!anyway, thanks!
ooooo cool! I have a snail that I got as a tiny baby like 1mmish about a month ago in a 1g, but he is still only about 1/2 of m fingernail, and i'm not close to full grown! he might be ok? I was thinking a tiny bit of java moss, maybe my snail, and 2 ghost shrimp? ok?Is sand subsrate, gravel, or marbles better? as for cleaning I was planning on a 10 percent once a week. sound ok? this will all have to wait a few weeks, maybe a month, but it think it will be really cool! daisycutter, can u post a pic of ur snails so i can know kinda what to look for? thx!
this is the best i can get there a very small ramshorn species there in all my tanks to some degree they must of came in with some plants they were not invited but not a problem there small inoffesive and feed on algea
