So I am starting what will eventually be a shrimp tank. I just got the tank set up for dry starting a moss carpet and i will wait until it fills in before I flood the tank, then cycle it, and then add shrimp.
What I have:
-5gal glass tank
-Whisper micro filter size medium (seems a little large but came with a tank package)
-Black aquarium sand
-1 led light (i don't know how much light it puts out)
-50W submersible heater
-A cheap fan
-Vesicularia dubyana (Singapore moss)
this is what i put under the sand to give it its shape so i wouldn't have to buy a ton of sand
here is what it looks like with the sand
here is the moss i bought, then i chopped off this vine into small pieces.
I spread it evenly over the sand and misted it with water from my other aquarium. i tried to upload a picture looking in from the top of the tank, but it won't work right now...
anyways-I hope you like it
i'm open to suggestions. I will do an update on the growth in around a week.
thanks for looking
