Breeding tank Size?

Recommended Posts

You can do fine in 10g tank if you keep everything in check. Larger tanks will always provide more of a safety net because they are more forgiving but not necessary with shrimp.


If you toss 10 shrimp in a 50g tank it will take a very long time to fill that sucker up. I would suggest making divided tank because once you start collecting shrimp you will quickly want more so think ahead.

Depends if your going for quality or quantity. Many "Serious Breeders" use 40 Gallons Breeder and 20 Gallon Long aquariums. I use 17.1g aquariums.
