10 Gallon Wild Type Shrimp Tank

Welcome to my Wild Type Shrimp Tank

I grabbed a 10 gallon tank at the LFS and grabbed some eco-complete since it's the substrate in the tank that they're in now. I also really wanted to try out this RocketFilter and grō soil that I got from a RAOK

So here's the primary info:
  • 10 Gallon
  • EcoComplete
  • Rocket Filter
  • ~25 lbs of leftover rock that I had laying around
  • T8 PowerGlo light
  • Using Flourish product line with this tank (excel, plant food and iron)
  • grō soil (First time using it)

Plants:
  • Water Wisteria (Hygrophila difformis)
  • Dwarf Sagittaria (Sagittaria subulata)
  • Brazilian Pennywort (Hydrocotyle leucocephala)
  • Moss Ball

This is a few days behind I took these pictures while I was setting up Just haven't gotten around to posting

So here's the first set of setup to current





The inlet is pretty thin trying to decide if I want to throw some type of sponge around this or not


Initial Layout


Close Ups with substrate in place






Plants and Water in and running:




Prolly going to move the moss ball back to my 55 gallon, it's in here right now to help speed cycling



That's that, I think that I'm going to change the substrate up a bit to give it some depth I didn't realize how flat it looked until I looked at the preview.

Reserving the next few posts for update purposes

Comments and suggestions always welcome
