Thanks! I'm enjoying it while struggling to find patience.
You're right about the filter. I tend to overlook equipment in tanks so it's not a big deal to me. And there's the added bonus that shrimp will graze on the filter.
Not entirely sure when I'll be able to order shrimp. This is "live" sand, so I'll probably have to wait for the bacteria to die off so other bacteria can grow. Most likely in a couple weeks.
Nice Jake!! I think that we are so used to seeing filters in tanks that our eyes just gloss over it like they aren't really there anyways. Pretty impressive that it's only a 2.5 gallon!
Interested to see how this turns out! When are you expecting the shrimp?
