Here are some pics from another aquarium where I have inverts.

It's a "15 liters" with Babaulti and Caridina breviata "Hummel". Pink Planorbis, apple snails and Melanoides. And: Microsorium Pteropus, Java moss, anubias and riccia.

Hope you enjoy this sample:

Thank you very much.

I got it at pet shop. The brand is "ICA", very common in Spain. This is a Spanish company.
Here you have a link to their web:

I bought "GD33".
Remember, They are wholesale and only sell to shops.

Most of my Caridina breviata "Hummel" are in a new "38 liters" now.

These look as C. breviata 'New Bee'

Hummel or Bumblebee look more as into the C.serrata group. And their color pattern always starts with black band... and some times they show the W in the first white band.

Hi Alesfra!

I like your tanks! They are so beautiful. And your shrimps too:cool:

I changed Hummels to a longer one this month because they are breeding and Babaultis are now in another tank with heteropodas. Now I'm preparing this aquarium to receive some CRS.

I usually use these tanks when I get new shrimps.

I had shrimps in 10 Liters and 15 Liters for seven months and I didn't have any problems due to aquarium's volume. I usuallly change water every 5-7 days and pH, GH, kH, Nitrates and Amonium are OK. The only thing that makes me change some shrimps to a longer aquarium is when they begin to breed and they don't stop doing it.

so it's not a full time housing for your shrimps. more quarantaine. ok thanx for the info.
