my question is what do I do with this tank? Could it be used as a pest snail tank instead of the almost equally small unfiltered tank I'm using now?

Would I need to modify it a bit to keep the snails from being sucked into the next compartment?

(had bettas in it but they are in new tanks now)

What about a planted bog aquarium. I think that would look nice.

Maybe some Neocardina shrimp?

It is planted. Not with those types of plants though.

I'm not really sure I want to get shrimp for it unless I can't use it for my pest snails. But even then seeing as how I can never see all of my ghost shrimp in any of my tanks I'm not even sure if I can raise shrimp correctly.


I'd mainly want to use it for my pest snails if possible

How different are they? I don't know much about the different types of shrimp. I just know about ghost shrimp cuz that's what I use as tank helpers lol

Out of the box, most anything small you put in there is going to end up in the reservoir under the little display tanks eventually. You might be able to rig sponges or baffles to help keep everything in place, though. Plastic craft mesh glued into place with silicone or superglue might work.

I don't know what could be causing yo u not to see them, they could just be hiding. Looking for them at the letstore takes me forever, because they are really hard to see. I can only imagine in a larger tank... I plan on getting Men's for myself pretty soon. I think that most of the Men's, especially cherries, from what I have read, are very adaptable to water parameters. In a small space with say a Marino Moss Ball, I think you would see them just fine. I don't know if you already mentioned this, but it is possible for fish to eat the ghost shrimp, but it depends on what you have with them.

And I do agree with Briggs that you should definetly rig something up to prevent shrimps, or whatever you decide to keep in their from being moved from section to section .
