10 gallon shrimp tank upgrade
Just got done moving my shrimp from 10 gallon to 20 gallon long. Everything went smooth. Put old substrate underneath new black fluorite. And had a java moss carpet in my 55 gallon on the back wall using a cross stitch mesh. It measured 11.5x18". So i moved that into the tank and placed it as a carpet on one half to really help the transition for the little guys. shrimp were not too bad to catch. Moved all the old substrate to one side of the tank and sucked them up with water and all using a 1.5 inch tubing. I did not do this with the prized 9 Crystal reds i have. They got special treatment. LOL. Shrimp appear to be very happy and the two more of the CRS have molted in the new tank and are now berried with eggs.
