I have been totally into freshwater shrimp since I first saw them, and I decided to put together a dedicated shrimp tank. I wanted to try an ADA tank since I have heard so many good things about them. So a 60p seemed like a good start.
I still need to decide on a background. The easy choice would be dark, but I am tempted by a light and slightly back-lit background. Not much other to do than that and wait for the plants and mosses to grow in.
: ADA amazonia. Is this stuff really as magical as everyone says? I thought it was time for me to find out.
:My buddy put together an awesome LED build with separately adjustable white and yellow LEDs on a ramp timer.

CO2 and Ferts:
Update: c02 injection from 10lb tank with victor dual-stage reg. EI dosing with auto-dosers.
CRS/CBS and fire yellow colony. Potentially compatabile micro fish once colonies are established.
: c. parva, c. lucens, a. nana petite, s. repens, e. parkeri, e. cinereum, peacock moss, m. minuta
I am open to other suggestions. I was thinking maybe c. petchii or another small-medium sized crypt, or maybe red lotus if I could keep it pruned small enough? I have lots of vibrant greens atm, but I was especially hoping for something more on the reddish spectrum.
