I would recommend at least a 10 gl tank. I would also recommend a air driven sponges filter. You should also be very patient and let the tank mature for a 2-3 weeks after the tank has cycled. Shrimp can be very delicate depending on the variety. Check out some of the sites that deal in invertebrates. You can save a lot of money and headaches by reading up. If you have more questions just email me at toddziegler15@gmail. Good luck!
