Smile 5 Gallon Rimless Iwagumi Shrimp aquarium

Equipments:
-5 Gallon Rimless aquarium
-Eheim 2213(temp)
-Clip On lights from idea bulb from Big Als.. Life Glo energy saving 15 watt=30 watts

Flora
-Dwarf Hairgrass

Fauna
-Small Angelfish(Temporary so that i have something to look at =D)

I got some kind of parasites in there... Looks like BBs although i know for sure that it isn't. the angelfish is there to try and eliminate the parasites.

I use a free account at www.Photobucket.com to host my pics, then upload them onto the website with the picture link in the edit pane (the little yellow box with the mountain on it).

If the "parasites" are whitish and free-swiming, you may have Daphnia. If so, they are not parasites, and are great live fish food.

Your tank looks nice!

Wow it looks really nice. Your DW with the java looks amazing! I really love the color of it. Once all that hair grass fills in this tanks will be absolutly stunning.

Looks very cool, I agree, the DW with the moss is amazing! Your shrimp will love it in there! Can't wait to see how this tank progresses!

And I too use photobucket.com, actually LauraLee is probably the one that told me about it too , but either way, it's really easy and works well!
