Small Shrimp Tanks

Small Planted Tanks for Pet Shrimp (PDF, 700 KB) was written for people wanting to keep planted tanks.  I show how to set up 1-gal bowls with small shrimp, which is an easy, inexpensive way to get started.  For hobbyists who want to try something a little different, I describe setting up small tanks with the Dry Start Method (DSM).  Here, aquarium plants are grown emergent (in air) for the first 2-3 months before adding the water and the shrimp to the tank. Both methods involve using ordinary soil as a planting medium and keeping Red Cherry Shrimp, which are hardy, colorful, and cute.
