Grammarus Culture and Ecosystem Viability
Posted 17 June 2007 - 02:49 AM
This tank will have a very low fish load, possibly reserved to just 1 or two shiners so that the grammarus doesn't die out. I'd like to experiment to see if something sustainable involving fish can be accomplished on such a small level. Anyone else tried to set up something that was self sufficient save for light/heat input and filtration?

Good Luck! I've been interested in trying the same thing.

One set up was a sponge filter in a 10 gal aquarium with no gravel I use unbleached paper towels to feed them. Believe it or not they love it.
Another set up is a 30 gal with an undergravel filter and a sponge filter with about 1.5 inches of small aquarium gravel. This set up does not alow easy access to the scuds because they get into the gravel quickly, but I am able to get a small amount from the unbleached paper towel. The smaller ones get into the sponge filter but do not seem to be a problem in there.
You can feed them the unbleached paper towels or use plants. But my goal is to easily remove the scuds to feed my small fish. I also place scuds in all of my tanks, they get into the gravel and breed in there.
