underground tunnel network

Recommended Posts

catPolice

Hi all, I'm new to shrimp but had an idea for a tank set up involving constructing a pvc network of tunnels under the substraight for the shrimp to live, hide and breed in. I was considering using a 15 gallon tank setting up the tunnel network as a grid with 4 or 3 entries on the front and back and 2 or 3 along the width and a row down the center. how would you guys think that would work?

It would make seeing the shrimp near impossible. 

The shrimp might like the hide out. But I guess  there is a compromise - being able to see the shrimp vs a nice hideout.

No, because you would never be able to clean it out.

      Traps don't work on hydra. Even with planaria, it is slow and it doesn't catch them all.

      Very wise as once they start breeding your population may sky rocket anyway, as they have with the CBS! I'm sure you should get some really nice surprises/colours when they start cross breeding too! Simon

      I will stick with the present shrimps, give it another month or so before I add some more shrimps.

      More fantastic pictures love the blue shadow panda and the 2 red pinto galaxy. Great to hear all is going so well! If you have a lot of CBS then they will breed when they are old enough so losing the 'mother' isn't too bad at this stage and they only love max 2 years anyway. Glad you still have 2 blue bolts as well - those will probably be my next purchase when they are in stock? The putting spinach in my tank has brought a few of my shrimps out but bizarrely they aren't touching the actual spinach? Seen 2 black and 3 red (of the 8 total I bought) so far today? Simon

      update my new tank is becoming stable, the shrinps are growing, I have seen many of the shrimps shread it's shell.   My old tank is infested with black CRS, but the mother had just died yesterday, I still have two blue bolts and a few CRS.
