As said, updates....I couldn't get my camera to take as good of pictures as I wanted. I just use a cheapo point and shoot (I mean cheap, not a point and shoot that is worse than better camera's, a point and shoot that doesn't compare to decent point and shoot).
As you can see, a lot of algae, the dry start didn't stop that. I am just going to see what happens. There is some fish food to start the cycle, I doubt it will be much of one, my filters have been on another tank for 2 months, used substrate, and a long time of having some water. If BGA can be prolific, I assume there is some bacteria for my future shrimp.
Anyway, not great pics but here it is. It will take forever to grow out so I am rethinking if I will keep my only plant:
As you can see, not much growth, there is but not much
