This is the same tank that I have. Looks like you have a good start.

Cool tank. Looks like a scene straight out of the show Lost. Jungle, shipwreck, caves.

Those caves would be perfect for some territorial fish, or maybe some pleco breeding

Very nice tank. I love that you worked some common aquarium ornaments into the scape. It looks great.

2 things.

1) Did you get the other LED's?

2) The ghost shrimp eggs will not survive. Once they break the egg the babies need saltwater to mature then as adults they go back to fresh. You may want to try some cherries if you want something to breed. But they are small, so make sure they don't end up as lunch. Keep up the good work man.

Got ya. Ghost shrimp are pretty long lived though. I have one that I bought 2 years ago and he is about 3 to 4 in long now. If you are gonna keep the ghosts you may want to wait on the other shrimp. Ghost shrimp may eat them if they are small enough.
