No pictures yet, but I'm actually waiting to hear back if the stand is done for my new 150 mixed reef. Maybe later I'll post some photos of the 17 gallon freshwater guppy/shrimp/plant tank.

I've been thinking about changing my small 15 gallon planted guppy/shrimp tank over to a betta instead. Never had one and they intrigue me.

I’ve got some 3D printed stuff in mine, exclusively PETG. I don’t know how PLA would hold up over the long term.

There’s already a lot of various plastics in aquariums, so as long as you stick to similar materials you should be fine.

Quoted from marioparty34:

My teenager decided to start a shrimp farm.
I would be curious to see if we can get them to breed.
[quoted image]

If nothing is there to pick off the fry, and you have enough of both genders to kick things off, shrimp can breed as prolifically as guppies. All you need is to have the shrimp in there .... once they start breeding you'll have the things everywhere. Nice thing is they don't increase the bio-load too much so a high number of shrimp won't negatively affect the tank.

If you look under the backsides of them eventually you'll see the female shrimp get 'berried', with eggs maturing. When you can start to see features such as eyes in the eggs, they're getting close to hatching. The first time they hatch you'll probably not see the fry, they're really hard to see until you know what to look for. I might suggest adding some java moss or christmas moss to the tank as it gives a very good hiding place for the fry where fish can't get to them. Most fish will eat the fry if given the opportunity.

One caveat with shrimp is that they tend to prefer a higher Gh/Kh as the minerals are needed for their carapace. If you're using RO water for topoff and water changes, you may want to look into a shrimp mineral supplement.

I need to get some fresh photos in here of my saltwater setup. Corals are finally starting to really thrive and color up again.
