Is it affordable to place fish on this shrimp tank? 11.75 x 11.75 x 12 about 50 neocaridina shrimp. I used to be pondering 5 or 6…

  1. Kind of small at roughly 7+ gallons and loaded with other living things already. How about a nice simple setup of a 10 or 15 gallon tank for the endlers?

  2. I’d call it a so-so bordering on bad idea. 7 gal is already very small, plus if they ever get sick you won’t be able to dose a lot of copper medicines since they will kill the shrimp.

  3. Well established shrimp tank. 7.17 gallons/11.75×11.75x12in. Around 72 degrees with a Dymax slim-flo 240 filter. Was thinking a few male nanofish, but I’m okay with just the shrimp, I am just asking for advice.

  4. The only fish I’d put in a 7 gallon are a betta or a pygmy puffer, and neither can be trusted with shrimp. Any other fish really needs more horizontal swim room.

  5. You could probably do 2-3 endlers, but 4-5 are a bit much.

  6. Yeah, absolutely. Not like the shrimp use the open water as much as the Endlers will. Endlers aren’t exactly heavy on your filtration, either.
