Ctls's 7.5g shrimp cube
Yea this was my first attempt at planted, my 20g tall has one African cichlid in it as he was the only survivor from hurricane sandy, the shrimps and plants all survived in this tank though. I also have a 55g tank that I keep some rainbows in with a nice piece of driftwood and some crypts. That would be where my crypts will go if I decide to remove them. I'd really like a carpet plant in here but I don't think I can do that with this light and lack of co2. This substrate is also the biggest pain when planting, half of the time I put them under and they come back out, or float up the next morning. I also forgot to mention I have a ton of needle leaf ludwigia I got from one of those culture packets at petsmart just to see how they would fair. Does anyone know how big the stem gets around, right now they are like 1mm diameter stem and I thought there stem would end up like my rotala monneira.
