Looking good Han. Like all your other jungles! Dang that cholla wood was super dry huh? Floating like mad when you were first filling it.

What's that HUGE snail that's roaming around in the middle of the tank in the pictures? Apple? I see the nerites and a lot of pest snails too :P

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.
