Added two bow tie guppies...and some micro sword. I'm gonna let it establish some good roots then give it a haircut. Right now it's way to tall.

I haven't seen them picking on any shrimp....but I'm sure if it can fit in their mouth they'll eat it. So, I would guess they eat the tiny tiny baby shrimps. Not so bad since they're reproducing like crazy.

After seeing a nice edge with sand and anubia's, I decided to replicate that tank as best as possible. Trimming, adding ferts, doing water changes is a real hassle with this tank. So, this seems to be the best fit for what I'm looking for. It was also a good opportunity to cull some of my CRS and leave only the darkest reds.

Left my Flourite black sand in the middle and surrounded it with playsand.


Attached all my anubias nana to this piece


Some Micro sword


Dry setup


Added a Black cardboard for the background

Filled up with water. I'm planning on adding 5 lyretail guppies some time this week.

Nice Job!!! I love the transition of this tank from beginning until now! And I think I like the latest one the best. It is just begging for a crypt now

Did you redo your Edge or get a new one?

Just re-did it after seeing some nice pics of a simple edge.

I have shifted to the low maintenance lifestyle here lately. The plants are all anubias with a few bronze crypts. The lights are just MR11 LED's from Lowe's. I hardly do any water changes, mostly top-offs. I found that guppies do well in this tank/setup.

This is actually my favorite tank because it never has algae and is a pleasure to look at from all angles. It'll be a cool office tank for you.
