My shrimp tank

I purchased 5 ghost shrimps about a month ago (maybe?) and 3 of them have survived living with my bettas! I decided to put them in their own tank though so they can live without fear of becoming a snack. I never saw these guys when they were living with my bettas. I put them in with the decorations I stopped using with my bettas for various reasons. I'll call them Larry, Curly and Moe.
I'm thinking of maybe adding a few RCS too. These guys are in a 3G kritter keeper on my computer desk. They sure do crawl around a lot more without bettas in the tank! :)
I put a heater in with them since I read that they prefer temps between 70-78. and its supposed to get down to 27 outside tonight & they're by a window.
sorry about the picture quality. These guys are so cute!

Well I have kept them in tanks with light colored gravel up until now. So i'm not sure.... lol

thanks all. its so fun seeing them enjoy the tank with no hiding. of course they have plenty of hiding places if they so desire

If it were me I would finish off that last ghost shrimp or move it back in with the betta.. Then get some Cherry Shrimp or maybe crystal shrimp & make it a real shrimp tank.

Currently I have a 29g planted that just for shrimp & snails while the plants grow out. Its still fun to look at.
