need help with First Shrimp-Only tank!
I tried keeping a few shrimp in a community tank but they died when they tried to molt. It could be me or it could be the shrimp - i always had fish problems from the store i got them at. Anyway. My grandma is in a nursing home for now and i wanna set up a shrimp bowl for her. I have a bowl, it's like 2 gal. Ideally - i just wanna dump some sand, live plants, floating plants and shrimp in. i don't wanna deal with filters and heaters and such.. but i do have a sponge tiny filter and heater if i have to... just too many wires, she already has too much stuff piled up everywhere lol basically, just wanna have a pretty bowl for her to enjoy.
i saw those self-sufficient glass bowls w shrimp that obviously don't have any filters or heaters so i wondered if i could set up smth like that. i can feed and change some water a few times a week.
any ideas guys how to best approach this?
