After much time visiting this website I've finally decided to post a journal of one of my planted tank experiences.
Strictly I want this to just be a shrimp tank, I was thing maybe a fire red, rili, or even CRS tank would be nice.
A bit of research went into finding the perfect tank. I went with a TrueAqua 11 gallon rimless tank.
after I measured the bottom of my stand, i cut up an old yoga mat to be used as a cushion.
Now I have it all set up and cleaned, looks pretty nice so far!
The photos above are from about 2 months ago, so flash forward to today:
-11 G TrueAqua rimless tank

-Dwarf Baby tears
-Tall hair grass
-Crypt Wendtii Green
