  • "Tanked" shrimp

    Okay so I am starting this thread to "show case" all my shrimp tanks, jars, and vases! To start this thread I want to show my current project that will he housed in my bathroom...

    2 empty vases and 2 small bags of beach sand(I ended up only using one)

    Added 2 cups of MGOS and half a bag (21oz) of beach sand


    Then we add cholla wood... I have mixed sizes I like the first one more than the 2nd one...

    I haven't planted yet as I'm still deciding on that... Ideas are welcome but yeah that's all I got done right now... No water yet...

            I really like the idea of the wood coming out of the water

              Just a question, you are aware the wood is very light and has a tendency to float? If so, ignore me.

                Thanks I loved the idea of it since I have seen some tanks with wood coming out of the water :-)

                  I like the way that looks. I also like the wood coming up past the top. It is going to be very interesting when you get it done.

                        Anubias petite would look wonderful.

                          Lol I have a few Anubis Nana v. Eye (I believe thats how you write it out?) And the parva lol... I also have some wisteria... I was wondering if I just let it grow will it eventually come out of the water and grow "emersed" I think it would be really awesome... that or I was thinking of growing a single mangrove in each one and have some various carpeting plants grow around them... oh and I was wondering what floating plant grows the longest roots? I'd like to grow a few and add a jungleish effect but try to keep it simple...

                            Red root floater may work. My worry would be that most of the floating plants with long roots, require pretty intense lighting.

                              You have a great idea you are working with; but I'd start by dumping out half, if not more, of that substrate. By the time you add plants, wood, rocks, etc there will be no room for a single shrimp.
