Show off your shrimp tank!

Hi all. I just started up a shrimp tank on Sunday. I want to see YOUR shrimp tank for inspiration on aquascaping! Also, tell us about your shrimp tank! (lighting, filtration, inhabitants, plants, etc.)

Here's my 6.6gal RCS tank. Anubias, a Java Fern and some Java Moss are the plants. Stones are from upstate NY during vacation .. Pink /red colored granitic rocks. I actually just added some Petco Black sand to give the substrate a more salt and pepper look ... more emphasis on the pepper part.

THATS AMAZING HOLY MOLY! It looks so much bigger than a 6.6 too, almost like a 20! But fantastic job! Im extremely jealous of this tank!

Thank you! I'm satisfied with how it's come out .. I may add another plant or two.

I agree ... I measured the LXWXH and got around 8 gallons ... but the box says 6.6gal. It's the Petco Bookshelf aquarium. Maybe they estimate 6.6gal of with substrate and decor added? The mangrove root background is what really adds to the look.

Hopefully others will post their shrimp thanks that made me jealous .. put mine to shame. BUT no worries! I have a 20gal long in storage on standby!

Here is my custom Xbox shrimp/snail tank... Still working on new lights now so this picture in not 100% recent... And no real livestock except a (half-a-pea sized) mystery snail and it's micro-sized baby about1.2 gallon
... the acrylic tank is 100 percent custom built and the Xbox was my old Xbox that I gutted
RCS and assassin snails is the livestock I want and it's a live plant and a powerhead in it...

Nice tanks guys! I have a shrimp tank I tore down, then re-set-up and got new stuff for it. Just set it up today. I'll get pics up ASAP.
