For hobbyists that have not yet seen my article ‘Small Planted Tanks for Pet Shrimp,’ I recently put it onto the aquarium page of my book writing website.

Article shows how to set up a 1-gallon (3.8 liter) bowl with small shrimp. It is an easy, inexpensive way to get started with plants and learn how to work with soil. (If you succeed, you’ll have plenty of adapted plants to start a larger tank with fish. If you fail, you’re not out that much. :smile2:) For enterprising hobbyists who want to try something a little more advanced, I also describe setting up a small tank with the Dry Start Method (DSM). Here, the plants are grown emergent (in air) for the first 2-3 months before adding the water and the shrimp to the tank. Both of the article's methods involve using ordinary soil and keeping Red Cherry Shrimp, which are hardy, colorful, and cute.
