Planted Shrimp Tank Update


Recommended Posts

So this is my jungle tank. (Was) my jungle tank. 
 

I housed a dwarf water lily that completely took over my tank with its spaghetti like root system. Turns out they aren’t that dwarf! lol. I’ve also takin out and trimmed up some plants to open the space up and it didn’t turn out too bad. I’m no aquascaper but I’m learning🤘🏼
 

oh and a third generation of shrimplets were born acouple weeks ago😁 feel free to ask me questions if you have any!

Thank you! I tried my hardest to make this tank something the shrimps would really love. I’m not too sure about exact dimensions but the tank is a 3.7 gallon imagitarium pro deluxe. I’d say just by looking at it rn, maybe close to a foot tall not including substrate. I use the light that comes with the tank that has 3 settings. Moonlight is the first, second the white light with a couple blue rgb’s lights. Then the third which is a more relaxed light for evenings.

Wow, that shows just how far off my sense of scale is. I thought it was a tall tank. That's an impressive amount of plants in such a little tank.

I visited a LFS in another city today that had white cloud minnows--I've never seen them in person before, only online. They were about 1/3 the size I was picturing them.
