Default My simple 2ft shrimp tank

I was inspired by many bros with their beautiful shrimp tanks and I decided to embark on my own project. To be very honest, I totally have no idea how to set up a shrimp tank let alone keep shrimp. I took some time reading the info provided by many experienced bros and thatís the best advice one can get. Hopefully my tank and shrimps can be half as nice as theirs. Enough said, letís get on with the real stuffs.

Equipment
2ft GEX tank (60cmx30cmx40cm)
2 canister in-series with adjusted flow rate at 600-700L/hr
1/20hp Hailea 100A chiller
UP LED light and custom made acrylic stand
Glass inflow and outflow lily pipe
Custom made acrylic bubble stopper
Customer made acrylic hanging plant holder
And whatever you see inside the tank

Substrate and supplements
ADA Amazonia soil (normal & powder)
ADA bacter 100
ADA Tourmaline
Borneowild minerax
Borneowild minerock
Borneowild bee ball
Mosura Shizhen
Mosura Denitro
Mosura PH down
Bio earth
And whatever you can or cannot see in the tank

Setting the tank with ADA soil is really painful and takes a long time to cycle the tank.

Finally cycled after 2 mths plus. Transferred my shrimps into the tank. Day 1 the shrimps a bit slow and not used to the new tank.
