New shrimp tank

We gallon brackish shrimp tank... Bubbler.. Play Sand.. And a josh-custom light fixture (I'm quite innovative ) about 15 shrimp and a mystery fish (most likely minnow) that got caught along with shrimp sand is still settling

I am feeding it a little saltwater flakes figure minnow will eat then shrimp scavenge for the rest

This is my first time with shrimp let me know my pros and cons

The water and all live stock are all from the Chesapeake bay which is some of my yard (I have a pier with boats etc)

What kind of shrimp?

Seems a bit small even for a "minnow". Are you using water from the bay for water changes?

The healthier an environment you provide, the longer you'll get to enjoy the company of your little friends. I recommend you rethink the water change regiment, unless you really enjoy replacing livestock.

What's a "we" gallon?

Do you know grass shrimp get to reach 2 inches and mature fairly quickly due to their short lifespan?

jetajockey: no cant really get a good pic :/

MrPillow: if they die i feed them to my saltwater tank and walk to my back yard wit a net and catch more.... not that i like re-supplying but to me its "half pet __ half pet-food"

LyndaB: mine only get about 1-1.5 inches


::UPDATE::
6x .5" catfish
3x .75" mystery fish
3x .75" other green mystery fish
1x 3" ell-ron (aka baby eel but not really((he burys himself in the sand... TO COOL))-)
4x (2x .75")(2x 1.25") shrimp

seem really happy and active but i turn the bubbler off at nighttime due to noise not letting me sleep and if i leave it off till afternoon the next day by accident then they all come to the top for air but once i turn it on 10 minutes and they are back to happy and swimming around... they eat flakes but prefer algae bits

All in a bowl?

I'd like to see what some of them look like

And that's all in what I am assuming to be an unheated, unfiltered, 3 gal bowl? Or is it smaller? I'm hoping you find a 300 gal tank or so for an eel, six large catfish(what exactly are they?), mystery fish, and shrimp
I'm also assuming that the cats are flatheads, bullheads, channels, etc
Sorry if I sound rude
If not you still need an upgrade but this would be a really cool tank if you grew these fish out in a larger tank
It would make a great native tank

...am I the only one here who is a bit confused? I'm gonna be blunt here so pardon me. You have what seems to be a 1-3 gallon bowl with 6 catfish, an eel, 5 prawn, and others. By no means should you have all of them in there. Especially since it is unheated and unfiltered. I think before you go buy another tank and 10-20 tetras you should either find a bigger home for them or return them to the bay from whence they came. I understand that you don't care if the die, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't be responsible in their handling.

I've gotta agree here. Let them go and catch some more when you have an appropriate place to keep them.
