Nano Shrimp Tank?

Whitethorn

I recently got into keeping shrimp and the idea of a low-tech nano shrimp tank really interests me. I was wondering if a 1.5-2 gallon tank would be okay for one? I have a lot of extra substrate and a few plants I could spare for it as well as ghost and cherry shrimp already populating a portion of my larger 20-gallon tank. What can I do?

Looks like a good set up to me

I have a 2.5-3g shrimp tank. I have gravel substrate (want to change it to sand though), a few rocks in there, and a TON on hornwort (it won't stop growing) and my shrimp love it.
If you put rcs in there you'll soon have a thriving colony. I'm not sure if you would ever be able to see the ghost shrimp.

I literally JUST set it up with gravel from my 20-gallon and a few plants... How soon do you think I can transfer the shrimp?

Haha sweet!
I would move some filter media from the 20 gallon over and throw some food in every day for a week. If everything still lools good, do a WC and move the shrimp over
Shrimp are sensitive to water parameters, but so long as those are under control you can move then whenever you are ready
