Shrimp raising with filter

Kanti113

Hi all,
Just wondering im trying to breed cherry shrimp in my 1.5 gallon jar to hopefully release in small amounts in my large planted tank.
Shrimp are all happy and the jars been running about 2mths with around 12 shrimp.

Question is I have a small hang over filter that I fitted a filter sponge to the siphon. Just wondering will the fry be sucked in through the sponge

No, they will graze on the sponge. Use a fine sponge, not a coarse one. But I think I recognize the type of sponge, which is a fine one.

Breeding shrimp in jars is doable; I would take out almost all of your substrate though as your shrimp wont be able to reach all the waste that is slowly building up in your substrate.

I would increase water level at same par as the outlet of your filter.

Add a leave or another plant for more grazing material.
