    Learning from my previous failures, I came up with a new nano shrimp tank setup for Neocaridina shrimps. I'm sharing with you how it's done.

    New shipment of shrimps arrived at an LFS earlier than expected. Suffice to say, I happily brought 20 pieces home for my nano shrimp tank.

    Eight weeks on and I'm pleased to see shrimplets (as well as algae) all over my nano shrimp tank. They look healthy and are growing well.

    I'm starting to feel that maintaining a nano shrimp tank is not that hard after all. Here's what it looks like after 12 weeks and counting.

    Tank size is 30*18*24cm. About the same size as the ADA Mini S, if I'm not wrong.

    It's an HOB filter. The AZOO Mignon Filter 360, to be exact.

    Hope that helps.

    Almost zero adult shrimps left in my nano shrimp tank but the number of shrimplets I see in it gives me hope that the colony will thrive.

    Everything is looking good for the past 20 weeks. Recently the pH of my nano shrimp tank starts to drop a little. Should I be concerned?

    Close to a half year since I set up the nano shrimp tank. Small issue with the KH and pH but other than that, water quality remains good.

    This batch of shrimps in my nano shrimp tank has been around for about half a year but their size remains small and I'm getting concerned.

    More than half a year has passed since I set up this nano shrimp tank. Although the shrimp are surviving they are not thriving, yet.

    Thank you. That's Christmas moss on the wood. A little side info if you're interested. I chopped the moss in a blender with a bit of distilled water, apply it to the wood (using a brush) and grew it using DSM for a few weeks before putting it in the tank. So far, I've never trimmed it and I kind of like how lush and wild it has grown.

    Started feeding the shrimps in my nano shrimp tanks with frozen bloodworms. Hoping the change in diet will help them grow and breed.
