All for Crystal Red Shrimps
My aquarium craze.... the tiny crystal red shrimps. Started keeping them early January this year.
My friend has a planted tank full of shrimps. It was so COOL and it motivates me !!!
Frankly speaking, I'm the lazy lazy type, that's why I never had a planted aquarium because I find it very troublesome. But now, it's all for the love of the crystal shrimps...........
I had actually tried to keep them without plants but it seems that the shrimps will die about one week or so.
So I hope with this planted tank it will be a suitable environment for them to live in. Set up this tank planted tank w/ electronic CO2 only on 27 August 2007. Now this tank only have 2 cherry shrimps that I've transferred from my 1ft tank. I want to wait for the water to be more stable before introducing any crystal shrimps. Too much casualties had happened before, so I have to be more patient.
Previously, this tank used to house some fishes and very easy to care for plant. As you can see below. These plant last about 6 months. I only put in one Co2 tablet once a week for them. Fishes here are then transferred to my 4ft tank to live with Discus and Angel fishes.
This is a mini tank 1 ft tank that I used to keep shrimps for the past 8 months. The tiny plants in front rot and make a mess out of the tank. I rearranged the tank just now and as you can see the water still blur. (See the 2 picture below). I brought 12 on friday, four died and I transferred 2 to the Boyu tank. So I'm left with 6 cherry shrimps in this tank.
