I maintained a breeding colony of 4 multifasciatus in a 6.6 gallon fluval edge quite successfully, until eventually moving them into a 39 gallon column (actually hate this tank, bad footprint) it can be done, but there are so many other options I'd go to first, as these are way more fun with more room IMO

petco has $1/gal deal, so a 10gal is only $10, which is a good size for shellies

I think he's trying to just find something that will work with what he has and not have to go out and purchase more tanks.

Yeah, i just have it cycled and nothing in it! So is there a certain shrimp I should get for the tank, or just my opinion on color?
