Aquarium for shrimp – description and device

Shrimp – Aquarium for shrimp – a good alternative solution for aquarists, limited in space and time. A miniature container does not take up much space, and tiny crustaceans are unpretentious in their care.

As a shrimp, you can use any small aquarium, but the acquisition of a special tank will require a minimum of effort to arrange it. Manufacturing firms producing shrimps combine beautiful design with all the necessary equipment already built in: filter, heater, lighting.

The choice in favor of the shrimp or aquarium depends on whether you plan to get only shrimp or contain crustaceans with fish. In the first case, a special shrimp maker will do, and in the second, an aquarium will be needed, the size of which will be larger than the specialized containers for shrimp.

In the pet store you can choose a model in which all the necessary equipment is already built in, if not, then you will have to buy a set of equipment separately. The minimum kit for shrimp equipment includes:

– filter with aeration function;
– heater;
– thermometer;
– lighting.

In addition to the above equipment to run a mini-pond for shrimp, you will need:

– soil, the color of which depends on the planned landscape;
– a landing net and an otsadnik with practically imperceptible openings so that tiny shrimps do not slip out of it;
– spines, which will be needed when planting plants;
– decorative background;
– scenery: stones, pottery, snags.

Some tips on keeping shrimp:

1. Do not inhabit shrimps of the same genus together, the results of their crossing are not always successful;

2. Get at least a few filter shrimp, they are expensive, but extremely useful as orderlies;

3. Watch the temperature, in the shrimp house you need to maintain a constant 24-26 ° C;

4. Start with the most simple and unpretentious shrimp, no more than three types to begin with, and only having acquired some skills, move on to more demanding species;

5. Feed the shrimp with high-quality feed and set up a weekly fasting day;

6. Do not be discouraged if shrimp dies or slime appears on the coat. Study the material relating to this problem, consult with a more experienced aquarist.
