I have seriously caught the shrimp bug so of course it was time for another tank lol. My son Mason LOVES watching my oebt and supreme red tank, so the obvious decision was to get him his own tank. When Frank had the 12" cubes for sale I knew this was the perfect tank for him.
This will be an extremeley slow work in progress. I plan to dsm hc till atleast the next 2 months as I had great success doing this with my oebt. I will then let it cycle for another 2-3 months to allow bio film build up. Plus I believe cool temps for shipping sensitive shrimp is a must, so I want to wait for the fall to add shrimp.
I went with Liam's ugf design. Now I am considering a reverse ugf, thoughts? It will be hooked to a 2213 chock full of matrix.
I will be using 2" of Africana and and inch of New Amazonia on top of that ish. I will have the soil very thick in the back around the manzanita and over the ugf. With a pretty extreme slope maybe to an inch of just Africana in the front. Contemplating using some epoxy coated seriyu stone at the base of the tree but not sure if it will be too busy.
Here is the tank as it sits today. Just waiting on the "special sauce" drone Liam to start the dsm.
I have quite a few tricks up my sleeve for this tank I will reveal as time progresses. That's all for all will update along the way but not much will be happening for a while.
P.S. can anyone ID this moss? I got it as a small piece with my oebt and it has exploded and the shrimp just love it. I will be using this as the primary moss for the tree.
