I'm getting ready to start a 10g shrimp tank. I'm tired of plain ghost shrimp lol, although they are fun to watch. RCS or CRS is what I'm thinking. So, I'm curious how you started your "shrimp jungle." What substrate are you using and are you using liquid ferts, CO2, etc? I've been timid on starting a planted tank, but I know my shrimp will benefit from it. I kind of want to stay away from CO2. That's my main setback, or else all my tanks would be planted! Lol. Thanks in advance!

There's no need to vacuum a jungle, but you still do water changes.

Its not hard to have a nice planted tank without co2, depending on what kind of plants you stock it with.
