    Hi guys, I'm a little out of my depth here, but I am looking to get my son a shrimp tank to start off with. I need a little help with everything because what I know about this is scary :) So I am a complete newbie but looking to improve :)

    Firstly welcome Marike, glad you found APSA before you purchased any goodies, sure it would save you in the long run!

    See Classified section, think @js is selling a good Aquael tank, perfect to start with for a bargain. The light alone costs what his asking.

    For the rest of your questions I'm sure the shrimp pimps will be able to organize you. Good luck and I hope your son enjoys your gift. I sure will!

    Welcome to APSA...I know you said you want to get your son a shrimp tank, but I think you should lead by example...and get yourself a tank as well. Twice the fun...a bit of quality bonding time...I know my mom wants that. Then again...I've always been a bit of a problem case...

    Anyhow...swiftly moving on...

    As Nate suggested, have a look at this thread:
