Well i finally pushed GO and purchased an upgrade tank for my shrimp, it will replace my larger tank that has the majority of the shrimp in. I purchased this one, it should be here on the 25th of November... Its the tank only so no lights, stand etc and i had to source the glass lid and runners to hold it in place myself which was so hard to find as its sold as a open top tank.... i dont like that idea.
Its 140litres (37 gallons) and 800mm x 400mm x 450mm tall compared to my 67litre it should provide them with more room
It was a steal of a buy so i couldnt say no!
Only thing i need to sort out now is how to attach some lights, in the image its an open top tank so the light bracket sits on the tank edge but when you have the glass lid on it stops you being able to do this. Im not really sure what i can do? maybe suspend a LED light above? I'm also pretty nervous to move all shrimp to one of the 30litre cubes until i have their old tank broken down and replaced with the new one. I have baby shrimp, larvae and berried shrimp and id hate to leave any behind when i remove the sand and stuff or cause the berried ones to drop their eggs from stress.
