Some questions on sulawesi shrimp


Recommended Posts

Hey all, so I think I'm finally ready to set up my first sulawesi specific tank for shrimp and rabbit snails. Looking for reccomendations for everybody's favorite substrate,remineral supplements, hardscape items (wood or rocks, and if rocks what type) and where to buy some nice shrimp, not really set on any specific pattern as I find them all so nice looking. I already have 4 large golden rabbit snails  I've had for around a year and a half that I want to have in the tank as well as I've yet to have them actually breed at all that I've noticed, they just eat until they can't move, nap, and start over 😂

I've used gravel substrate (the small pebbles from a landscaping store), a type of holely rock and with a UG filter and crushed coral in the canister filter. It was a7.5 gallon cube.


Used salty shrimp 7.5 and RO water at first. Got tired of doing that and used tap for water changes (monthly). There were about 4 orange rabbit snails in there. My cardinals did great until I moved then the colony crashed.


The rabbit snails were placed in a junk tank (20 gallon long) with some gravel and hob filter. Another 4 snails were added and 2 years later when I broke it down and moved the snails I found about 40. The picture is the new tank with the snails
