Techically, while cycling, if you are using LR and a shrimp (dead from grocery store), then you would only need a heater to maintain temp and a way to circulate the water - you don't need lights or any of the other fun stuff like protein skimmers or filters or even a sump.

I agree with MSU, shoot for 1 raw, unseasoned jumbo shrimp per 30 Gallons.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

well thats no problem i live right by the ocean and could pick them up live if i wanted from the docks, and it has all sorts of pumps and filters and stuff like that of a pool, so i dunno we will see what i do, it has a piece of steel for the bottom of the tank that is super rusty so i am gunna put a piece of glass over that and silicon it in and re silicon the sides, it also has a steel stand with wheels so i can move it around a little easier, but i can't get it in my house so i am gunna keep it in my shop outside for a while and bring it in thru one of out sliding doors, i am gunna have to take off both pieces of glass to to it
