    Unhappy Need Help!

    Well this is my first experience keeping shrimps. I have a task to create an ecosystem not dependent on any filter or chemicals, etc.
    So i created a small aquarium with 2 plants the tank size is around 1L a very small tank with 2 plants( 1 moss ball and one one watermilfoil) now the plants take up close to 40% of the jar with fine gravel bottom. This houses around 4 Crystal red shrimp! As for the water is has undergone dechlorination. The water was set together with the plants and a fish for around a week so i guess its more stable. Today i finally placed the shrimps in and their behaviour is irrational :/ Sometimes they start darting around while others they lay in the plants.
    After intensive research i came across a wide range of information some which contrast so could someone help me out ><
    Are plants sufficient food providers?
    Is there a problem with my water?
    Will the oxygen level be sufficient?
    Ideal Temperature?
    I really hate to see my shrimps die :/ after weeks of preparation

    I cant really help you without pictures of your actual tank. Although judging from what you have told me, i can say that the shrimps are probably getting used to the new environment. As that is what my shrimps did when i moved them into a new tank.

    No filter at all? Just 1L? I don't think it's possible to keep shrimp in such a small glass. To unstable. Feel sorry for those shrimp.
