I have 7 ghosties not whiskers in a 2.5 minbowl with a sponge filter. I put a fry net in there and put my berried female in it. There is a 2in twig broken off a peice of driftwood and a marima ball in the net. There is also 2 other marimo balls on the bottom with gravel substrate. I added 3 pvc tubes in there too. My nitrites decided to spike and they are around 3ppm. I did not cycle this tank because its so small and I do daily PWC. I do know about the nitro cycle. I don't have another tank to put the shrimp in. I would like to try to keep the larvae alive after they hatch. I have spirulina I was thinking about mixing and feeding with a pipette. Any tips or suggestions are greatly appreciated.
