update pictures. getting slammed by algae but I have been tring to keep it at bay. I can no longer do a good cleaning of the tank because recently one female shrimp gave birth so I will wait until the babies are grown to start syphoning off debris as part of my cleaning. going to get a lot worse before it can get better i guess :P Oh and that female shrimp arrived already berried into this tank. I got to see how the babies are born.
the substrate plants are growing nicely. shey should eventually cover the entire floor.
