I may be getting a 2 gallon aquarium soon and wanted to do shrimp. I already have algae wafers from the plecos i use to have and algae pellets from the malawians. I also have java moss from the cory tank. I wanted to do a blue carbon rili tank, so A) Can i feed them the wafers B) How many could i have C) How long does the tank have to cycle, I've heard a shrimp tank has to cycle longer than other tanks for the aufwach. Sorry for the long post, trying to get this tank right.
