New Shrimp breeding tank


Posted on 24th March 2012 by King7 in Purchase

Finally got around to setup my new fish breeding tank!  I didn’t want to rush this project so I took my time putting it together.  The goal of this tank is to eventually house some taiwan bee shrimp.  I would love to get some pandas or shadows, but still not sure if i really want invest that much into shrimp.  Hopefully my company will either blow out our quarterly number or I can collect on some referral money to pay for this project.

Tank: ADA 60P

Light: Maineland double bright LED 18-24″ (will probably replace this with the plant version that’s coming out in May)

Filter: UGF (made out of PVC pipes) hooked up to an Eheim 2215.  I will also have a sponge filter.

Substrate: Amazonia (9l, normal).  Base layer: Seachem Matrix, Old Sea Mud, Bacter 100, Tourmaline BC


Tank with the UGF


Filled in the UGF with Seachem Matrix (to prevent the UGF to be clogged up by the aqua soil)


Plugged the Eheim 2215 filter into the UGF. Also added the base layer.


Added the aqua soil and the driftwood


Filled the tank with water - not so clear... (I also had to place a rock on the driftwood as it started floating)

Got the green light!  I have been wanting to setup a shrimp breeding tank, but couldn’t get the approval to do so.  I made an agreement with my wife that if I sold my 6gal tank, I can replace it with a new tank 🙂  I was able to sell my 6gal tank on the forum so here I am starting a new tank 🙂

filter setup -> going to go with the PVC underground filter (UGF)
