    Oh, about how much would you say the whole thing weighs? I'm getting a shelving unit tomorrow and each shelf is weighted for 350 lbs if evenly spread, but a ten gallon shrimp tank would only tank up about 2/3 the length of the shelf. It should only be like 150lbs right? With sand and decorations?

    The water would be 100 lbs (10 lbs per gallon), the weight of the tank, the gravel should be 10 lbs, so you would barely make it I think.. I can carry a 10g with one arm so, it should be about 15 lbs at the most.

    Yeah Dom is right. I don't think it's 150 pounds. It's less

    Thank you :). Don't know if they are Rili shrimp, some of my shrimp have the same colorations like the Rilis, but most of them are red cherries.

    Well plus like driftwood or rocks. Maybe 125? I think that would be okay for not being spread across the whole shelf. I really like this set up though!

    I sold like 20 or so big cherry shrimp a couple weeks ago. These are just the juveniles and babies that are left. Last time I counted I had around 40+, I see way more now

    Cool, I was looking into starting a 10 gallon shrimp tank and was wondering how many you have.

    That's cool that you want to set up a 10 gallon shrimp tank. I only started with like 3-4 cherry shrimp and I ended up with a lot. They keep breeding
