a shrimp tank would be neat, but if that doesnt work out maybe you could make make a nice planted tank with a small group of the blacklight tetras...they would be a wow tank during the night with the glow they have...and since they are barelly an inch they should be ok for 3 or 4...it owuld be tight quarters but they are schooling fish

Shrimp tank for sure, cover the entire bottom of the tank in java moss. Put in maybe like a beta and 6 or7 shrimp

I would not put any other fish in the aquarium. The babies will get eaten up fast. So could the large ones.

I have a 2-3 gallon fish bowl. I am using it to keep my unwanted shrimps. Cause my Blueberry shrimp breeded with my Red Cherry shrimps :(. The unwanted's are grey. I knew it was going to happen but I wanted to see it for myself. The plants I put are Baby Tears, Christmass Moss, Java Moss, and Dwarf Hair Grass. I trim as needed. Shrimps are doing good.

I use plain black gravel and a desk lamp that has one 13w 6500K CFL pigtail spiral light bulb.

Flourite needs lots of rinsing or it will cloud the water. Lighting depends on the plants you keep.
