Hi Everybody,

I've been keeping my 40 gallon community tank for over a year now and loving it. I have had a 1 gallon complete setup (for kids) in my basement for a while now and looking to set it up.

I would like to try to breed some shrimp. Is it possible to do that in a tank so small? Which species breed the best? If not, what else would you suggest for the aquarium? No goldfish or bettas. Thanks!

I've always liked the cherry shrimp. The only problem is that the setup does not have a heater. I read that ghost shrimp can withstand temperature changes well, so maybe those would be better??

I have no experience with Ghost Shrimp. My understanding is that they have a couple of breeding difficulties.

1 - They are cannibalistic so any small Shrimp will be eaten and I doubt they could find a place to hide in a one gallon..

2 - The offspring need specialized food because of their size. Infusoria for example. While not impossible, it could be difficult to feed this type of food in such a small tank.
