Setting up a shrimp tank.

So a local guy sells red cherry Sakura shrimp near by and I've got spare small tanks so I'm gonna set one up for the shrimp. I've got a 5.5 empty I'm gonna take some pool filter sand from my Africans and add it to the 5.5. I've got lots of spare rocks and plastic plants. Also have a lot of java moss shipping out tomorrow pretty excited about this project never kept shrimp before.

The cherries love the java moss. I used the small omega pellets for their food. Before i changed, i put them in my planted and they loved the amazon frogbit. Good luck, mine are completely lost in the plants now lol.
