Hey if you are a beginner I would start w/ a 10 gallon or smaller...everything will be easier to manage...I had a problem of jumping into CRS w/ a 30g to a 50g w/ little success....now I transferred my shrimps to a 10g and now everything is in place...good luck

Well technically they can live in any size tank as long as you keep the water parameters stable, but I'd just get the biggest tank you can afford.

I have them in 10, 20, 40 and a 55 gallon and all populations are doing quite well, as mentioned maintaining clean water with steady parameters is the key and that result is much easier to achieve in larger tanks.

I think 20G is a really good size to keep CRS....I have 4 tanks all around 20G...easy to control water quality and change water...

I mainly house my CRS in 10 and 20 gallon tanks. In my opinion, it is easier to monitor each specimen in smaller tanks with the possibility of moving a few around easier for breeding purposes.
