10G Dirted Shrimp Tank (Pic Heavy)

Just re-planted my 10G MGOPS tank with some plants I found at LFS and I'm waiting on more to come in the mail. Rock will be removed once spider wood no longer wants to float I use a full co2 setup on a timer that comes on 1 hour before lights on and 1 hour before lights off. I use the EI dosing method for fertilization.

Lighting:

Ecotech Radion XR15 FW

Fauna:

RCS
Bristle Nose Pleco
Otocinclus

Flora:

Ammania sp. 'Bonsai'
Anubias barteri var. nana
A.R.
A.R. mini
Bolbitis Heudelotii
Christmas Moss
Cryptocoryne undulata red
DHG
Hygrophila 'Araguaia'
Hygrophila Corymbosa var Compact
Hygrophila pinnatifida
Java Fern
Limnophila sessiflora ()
Ludwigia sp. 'Mini Super Red'
Monte Carlo
Pogostemon erectus
Pogostemon helferi
Rotala wallichii

……………..more to come in a week or so…..

Here's some pics…..

Thanks! That's actually what a family member keeps saying but it's raising my TDS levels too high.

Thanks! I'm using a full size cylinder. Keeps me from having to fill it very often. I don't remember the last time I filled it lol.

Bump: Now just sitting around dosing ferts and waiting for it to fill in…I need a time machine
