1gal bowl

sooo I finally got myself a one gallon bowl. happy! but clueless how I will project this bowl. what I have planned is to plant it with cryptocoryne and add root tabs. and maybe a snail.

no filter, heater, etc. (ill look into these if im going to decide on adding a snail).

and well heres the bowl.

its like 10 shrimp per gallon. You could probably go like 8 ghost shrimp and be just fine, doing your water changes etc

really? for ghost, I thought it was one gallon per shrimp. aha! that'd be sweet. but then that means I have to get a heater and filter.

maybe it was RCS sorry. I keep about 20 ghost in a 5 gallon and they are just fine. they dont last long tho. I breed them for food hehe


Also watch what shrimp you get. Some are cold water, like ghost. I keep the tank around 68 degs. if they are in my 75g Hatchet/Rainbow tank longer then 3 or 4 days they cook
