20gal Long shrimp tank...

This is my invert tank, along with another tank I have, but this one is completely dedicated to them. This is also where I am currently housing my baby dwarf crays.

the containers have microworms in them that I am using to raise some fry and I occasionally throw some in the tank as well.






And guess what...no CO2 injection

thanks
I say go for the invert tank...they are VERY addictive..and it's like watching a community in action, especially during feeding time when there is bickering..lol..they have amazing personalities for such little creatures

Whisker shrimp are my favorite

I am currently feeding mine peach tree leaves that have fallen, and they love them!....I should collect them from my trees before I no longer have them..they go fast, much faster than oak leaves..I didnt soak mine before putting it into the aquarium, and that's why the water is tea colored

Ooooh! Pretty tank!
I love shrimps.The only species I had though were ghosts and Amano.I would love more in the future.It is hard to find crayfish here though.

The green are probably my favorite shrimp, in terms of appearance, they come in a variety of color morphs, some are yellow, others are dark green, and others are a fluorescent green, pics do give them justice



This is my neocardinia species




And here are some random peacock gudgeon fry that used to be in the tank




The cyano problem has been controlled since I took this pic
