Lots of people have tell me that the tank looks more bigger than 20 liter :omg: I think its because of the curvature of the glass looks more deep to the eye, and yes Im searching for the perfect volcanic stones to make a nice scape. The shrimp are very comfortable so I dont worry about it, they can hide in the macroalgae if they want and they are in a very quiet zone in my room no one disturb them.

I see! I tried my new lava rocks yesterday and they seem pretty huge :smile: Well let's see what I can build with them...

Today first feeding almost 3 month after the shrimp arrival!!! I was waiting to feed since the tank was inmature, a single tiny pellet with spirulina, they seem to like it very much in less of 24 h it dissapeared completely. The 13 shrimp are doing fantastic growing and molting, I need to get them more cover for start the breeding

You have strong will power to wait 3 months. They must be happy with the treat.

Yes haha I had seen people feeding inmature tanks and having problems with bacterial blooms, cloudy water, etc So I prefer to be careful also now I have a great cleaning crew with the snails
