I started a planted quarantine tank a while back and decided to keep cherry shrimp in it. Will the shrimp, plants and sponge filter alone keep it cycled for when I need to quarantine fish to add to my main tank?
Yes, but if it’s a quarantine tank and you end up having to medicate the fish, shrimp may not be the best stocking choice as invertebrates are sensitive to most antibiotics, anti fungal, and parasite medications for fish and it may kill them.
