"desert" scaped 2foot shrimp tank

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

After a helping hand from a Mr [MENTION=9246]Donny@ageofaquariums[/MENTION] I have finally Aquascaped my 2 foot shrimp tank :)

I decided on a desert style theme as I will have 14 SW/GB in there from thursday next week

With water

I've gone with a inert red diamond sand with Thunder eggs as "mountains" and petrified wood as smaller peaks, I then used twigs(been in tanks for months already) with java moss covering them as "cactuses"

The only SW I've got, for now lol

Also trying to think of the other colour to really pop in the tank, was thinking either Blue cherries or if i can get my hands on some, Green Cherries. any other colour suggestions?

Regards,

Nathan

All the blacks come from chocs some breed truer black than others but am yet to see any that throw 100% black shrimp babies.Just a mater of sorting out blue base from brown base from bubs and culling the brown base to keep them breeding a higher % of black

Nice Mick!

Yay I'm learning more and more about these addictive, expensive little creatures! I hate researching online as everyone has their own opinions and I'd rather hear it from those on here who are experienced in shrimp keeping.

I'm torn between chocs/ blacks and yellows!

I'm kinda leaning towards yellow at the moment lol
