    What I have see and done very successfully is with a continuous aquascape from one tank to the next as if its one long tank.

    This certainly creates a lot of interest.

    With careful planning of your hardscape you would have plenty of planting space.

    Those tanks are FANTASTIC they are wanting me to go back to Aquascaping and Shrimps but no can do.

    Those 3 tanks side by side would make a fantastic Video if panned very slowly over them.

    If you are referring to my comment each tank is treated as a separate tank just push next to each other.

    You must have created a perfect environment in each tank for the Shrimps to breed so well.

    You have proven one very good point in having very successful tanks and that is create the perfect environment for its inhabitants.
