Nice! Cant wait till it fills in, there are really a lot of plants you could use including many of the rotala and ludwigia species for filling in. I would also like to see some grass plants in there for another texture, maybe microsword or hairgrass or blyxa, if you like blyxa check out my 20 long thread- http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/ta...pdate-5-a.html
Shrimp are sensitive to Excel. A better alternative to Excel with fish that are sensitive to it is Brightwell aquatics FlorinAxis. If the plants still need the Excel I dose half the amount recommended with FlorinAxis.
Wow, it's been a long time since I updated this. I'm not completely satisfied with it yet. The glosso looks like crap, my stems are melting, and that driftwood sits there so bare. Hopefully everything will be solved with my better lights and CO2. This was the best FTS I could get, my camera SUCKS at it, so mind the glare. My honeycombs also do this.
