  1. Hi everyone. In a few months I am thinking of starting my first shrimp tank. I have been keeping fish for about 3 years now and wanted to expand my hobby. I have tons of questions though. 1) For filtration, would a double sponge filter be a good choice? 2) I was thinking of starting with a 10 gallon, would that be a good choice or would a 20 gallon be better? 3) What temperature water do shrimp like? 4) I want to keep Neocaridina shrimp, can I mix the different breeds of them together? 5) If I am unable to keep the different breeds together, what breed would you recommend to start with? 6) Would purchasing 10-15 shrimp and allowing them to breed be a good idea to populate the rest of the tank? 7) Live plants vs. No plants (I've read many forums debating on whether or not you need them) 8) I know many fish will eat shrimp but I have read that you can keep Otocinclus Catfish with them, is this true? Sorry for all the questions, I just want to start of the correct way instead of having many shrimp deaths. Thank you all in advance!
