So I was going to turn one of my empty 1 gallon tanks into a planted shrimp tank. Now I want to know the whole run down on ghost shrimp cherry shrimp etc because I hope to keep a small colony so that I (excuse me if you hate the idea) can keep them for live food. My bettas all LOVE hunting for them and even though it seems cruel I have no problem keeping the ghost/cherry shrimp so that I can use them for food.
I have plants , do I need substrate? or should I just leave it bare?
Food? heater? let me know! Thanks!
