What are you waiting for!? Let’s build your first shrimp tank!
First of all, how big the tank you want?
『What size of tank should I buy?』
It's a very common question of beginner. Most people may think that the larger the tank, the harder the maintenance, so some of beginners prefer choosing nano tank to be their first tank. However, this might not be the best choice for a beginner.
大部分水族館販售成套的微型缸，水量約在9L~20L，包含了簡易的過濾器和照明，對有富有經驗的飼養者而言，這足以維持水族箱生態的正常運作，但實際操作上，越多的水量會明顯更有利於魚蝦生存，這有個十分重要的原因 —— 水的緩衝能力。
Generally, you can easily buy a set of Nano tank with 9L to 20L water capacity, simple filter, and lighting in an aquarium shop. For experienced breeder, that equipment is enough for them to operate and maintain the tank. However, for a beginner, plenty of water definitely bring many benefit to your aquatic animal. Here is the key point : Buffer Capacity of Water.
Sufficient water can dilute the nitrogenous waste released from aquatic animals. It helps to put off acidification, maintaining a steady pH range. Besides, you can simply change water to maintain the health of your aquatic animal before the Nitrogen Cycle establishes. Also, the larger the amount of water, the smaller the fluctuation of temperature, it gives your aquatic animal a chance to smoothly adapt to the temperature difference
Considering convenience and space, we highly recommend you choose a tank with 60cm width. It’s easy to buy accessories fit this specification. This appropriate size allows you to breed every kind of shrimp you want as well as convenience of maintainance.
