Kiran, just read your Mini S thread, very nice. I'm sure, by what I read, it was impressive.
I can't expect mine will be so amazing.
I've got a tank I'm quite literally going to transfer everything from.
I should get the tank tomorrow, and I'll spend some time reading directions and considering how to aquascape it. I'll probably start with my 'mobile' moss carpet which grew together quite nice, moss balls and arranging some of my column plants. I eventually want to grow out something on drift wood, but I wont receive a spec-sized-piece until next week.
Since I'm adding gravel, filter media and plants from another tank. After I've seen its full cycle, can I just add my shrimp? I presume it will have a sufficient bio-film built up from its time in the 5g.
