My first planted tank

So this is my first, it's a bit messy with millions of pond snails. I ordered some assassins so HOPEFULLY they will be all gone in a couple months. Only critters are 2 plecos and lots of not-so-yellow neos. Trying to find some around the area but no LFS carry them.

Wow... I love the tank. It's so simple, yet so beautiful. I'd imagine that it's like hideout heaven for your shrimps. I kinda wish I could find a store that sold shrimps like that. They're even making me kinda question whether I should go with cherry shrimp for my first planted tank or not.

That's AMAZING!!! I never knew it was possible to have an upside down tank, not to mention how you got the air bubbles from the stone to go down instead of up!! Seriously though, beautiful tank, I'm hoping the carpet in my 40b looks that good.

Nice pictures but I wish you can rotate them to normal angle for better viewing.
