Tank Profile: One Gallon with Yellow Shrimp

Tank: 1 gallon square with palm "hang-on-back" (HOB) filter and clip on light.

'Scaping: blue gravel, rocks, two types of plant.

3x yellow shrimp (Neocaridina heteropoda var. yellow)
1x red ramshorn snail

Top tips:
* A single ramshorn snail cannot reproduce and will help control algae.
* Keep water and gravel clean by using a baster or dropper to remove water from under the gravel where feces and mulm will tend to build up.
* Do partial water changes often, things can go wrong quickly in a micro-tank!

If you would like to have your 1-5 gallon tank profiled please send your information, one or more pictures and a username and link to your own website or blog. Be sure to include your own "top tips" for keeping a small tank in tip top shape!
