    I’ve just redone my 20lt tank. There’s only 4 amano shrimp in there. Anyone got any suggestions what else I can put in there?
    Hope you like it

    Hi Matt,
    Not sure which way to go really. Fish may look nice in there but I’m quite limited aren’t I? I’m Not sure what would suit the look.
    Shrimps are an option too but which ones to go for?
    whatever I choose I can’t add to my larger tank as my angels are getting pretty big now and they wouldn’t take too kindly to any smaller additions.

    i would go for more smaller shrimps, cherry, crystals, bee, tiger and so on. all would go well together. great looking tank.

    Try adding some leaf litter nessie. Oak or beech are both ok to use if you dry them out thoroughly first, or you can buy Indian Almond (Ketapang) leaves from various places. These would decompose slowly and the microorganisms that result are great food for shrimp. Makes the tank look really natural too.

    Hi Matt,
    I’ve seen those almond leaves in my LFS, I wondered what they were used for.
    Now I know

    yes, i use both oak and almond leaves. the shrimp love them.
    also a bit of bog wood as they also like to pick from that to.

    I always think moss-like plants look good in shrimp tanks, too. Hehe nessie now we’ve started we won’t stop!

    That’s because you’re not supposed to use tea leaves my friend
