Added 5 SSS Crystal blacks My nitrate has been hovering around 40 ppm and I can't seem to drop it after WC's the shrimp don't seem affected. The ramshorns are starting to regrow there shells they were pretty bad when i bought them. I redid the layout a bit to give more hiding spaces, the groves between the rocks and under the back side of the wood seem to be the good hiding spots for them. Also got my co2 split between my tanks now.

New pictures added
