What about turning it into a heavily planted tank to use for growing plants/cutting to use in other tanks (can't think of the name right now)? You could have the Mystery Snails in their to give it some extra life/movement and it wouldn't look as empty?That is definitely surprising. Unfortunately my Betta will attack Mystery Snails (Good with everything, but Mystery Snails, go figure!). Maybe I could try and find one that won't. It'd sure look empty and kinda boring with 2-3 Mystery Snails.
I wanted to use it as a grow out tank for baby snails if needed as well. Guess I better rethink that plan...
Have you tested your shrimp tank water parameters to see what could be wrong? I found a dead shrimp once and tested and my nitrates were at 40. Anything that high and they will die so I knew what was up. Changed the water and now I am seeing two different sets of new babies. Small and microscopic lol. Sometimes it's the smallest thing that makes you think nothing is happening. I also thought mine weren't breeding but then they all started working their way out of the rock they hide in as they grew and I realized I had a lot more than I thought I did in there.I actually just sold all of my Cherry Shrimp tonight. I had 23, lost 10 and the remaining 10 weren't breeding. I figured I'd use the tank for my blue and purple Mystery's instead.
Between this and my 29 gal and 10 gal I'm about done. It isn't fun anymore. It seems everything I want and should work, isn't/doesn't.
Thanks for the advice though.
