My 5.5 cpd happy place.

Maybe one of my favorite setups thus far.. such great little fish. Just set this up.
Tank: 5.5 gal.
16 " finnex planted plus suspended around 12-13" form sub.
Ac 20 filter
Aquatek mini at .5 bps.
Ceramic diffuser with fluval dc

Flora: lobelia card., ludwiga sp. Red, dhg. Some floaters believed to be water lettuce.
Fauna: 7 cpd, 5 Amano shrimp, 2 assassin snails and whatever they haven't eaten yet..

Tore down an established tank and rescaped last weekend. I'm really digging the look here. Not boasting, I've just set up a lot of tanks that did not make me smile like this one.. mainly just the cpds.. awesome awesome fish and they only come in twice a year. I prepaid for them a few days before I rescaped just so I'd have them!
They're pretty settled, taking frozen baby brine and even crushed cobalt flake tonight, ill get a chill vid tommorow at feeding, they school in the filter current and pick off niblets..
