Woooo! shrimp tank!

Well instead of trying to house shrimp with my fish imma just convert my 5g to shrimp! , its acrylic and ill post a picture later but the darned thing has been running for 7 years! It was a cheap $50 starter so I'm wondering, how difficult will it be to make the walls spotless and should I just buy a new tank, like a fluval, the tank came with a rim and a lid so its want to take that off I'm thinking, maybe keep the lid but cut the plastic rack on the inside that was for the default gear

Pictures?!?!

If the acrylic isn't scratched, start scrubb'en! Always test scrub in an area not visible in case it scratches.

Re: Woooo! shrimp tank!

I'm starting off with one of these, I don't want them to crossbreed so only one :Yellow shrimp, blue red rilis, Blue velvet, Blue diamond, or golden snowball, then eventually I hope to add crystal blacks and red

Re: Woooo! shrimp tank!

Unfortunately, they are alot less stable than CBS, so they're super delicate , don't breed true and would cross with the crystals
