    Are your RCS and yellows in the same bowl? If so, i would seperate them. They can cross and then you have "brown" shrimp.

    Dumb question.. Could I do something like this without filtration except a water change every week? Say kinda like a pond.. Do shrimps like that? Or how are u guys filtering them?

    No filtration at all for mine, just the air stone so it doesn't go stagnant. It gets weekly water changes like my actual aquarium...with such a small volume you can easily do a 70-80% change within minutes.

    I wouldn't say shrimp "like" having an unfiltered environment. I wish I could devote a whole tank to them, but this seems to be working.

    So my shrimp bowl (Seen above), has been set up for 21 days now. Many water changes later..... (small volume = less hassle)... I have removed some of the stem plants (growing much too long). Added a small rock with java moss tied to it. Lots of algae...... ready for shrimp. Still working on the temperature.....gets a bit chilly at night. There is a snail hitchiker or two in the bowl from the plants.....helping to keep the glass clean. I might wait until I can get some cherry reds from my lfs..... soon I'm told.
    Pictures to follow shortly.
    How has everybody elses bowls been doing since the setup? Updates?
    *1.5 g Male Betta Splendens - whisper 10i internal filter *2.5 g planted - 10 ghost shrimp - DIY sponge filter
    *10 g guppy breeder - modified aqualear 20, modified aquatech 5-15
    *NEW 14g BioCube FOWLR - Clean up crew added (snails, hermits, emerald crab)
    *35 g planted community tetra - aqeuon quietflow 30, modified whisper 20-40
