Some people run low tech tanks....others run high tech tanks.....I run ShrimpTech tanks....tanks built just for shrimps.

There are about 2-3 tank builds combined in this journal. Skip to the end for the latest projects that I'm working on. This first post will also be updated with current FTS.

Very nice. I am interested to see how the africana aquasoil looks. I am wanting to try it out but have not seen any pictures of it yet. Good luck with breeding the high grade shrimps while doing high light plants! I'm sure you can do it.

You won't be able to see my Africana. That is one of the reasons I redid my substrate a month ago. Switched out ASII for Stratum and also hid the Africana. Now my tank has an Africana core surrounded by Fluval Stratum shell.

Where did you get that little glass orb bro? I want one

And do you like stratum better than aquasoil, disregarding the color(Stratum looks better).

Nothing Ventured. Nothing Gained.

The glass orb was a gift from a friend. The moss wall is your moss Ben.

Stratum looks way better. We'll see how it grows plants. I doubt it has as much nutrients as AS, but I'm ferting the water column so hopefully it'll be OK. It is lighter in weight than AS and it doesn't cloud the water as much when I move stuff. I'm injecting CO2 and using RO so I am not relying on the substrate to buffer my Ph.

I like that orb as well, what does it say in the writing? Bush? Rush?

Nice looking tank. I like the moss pads around the crypt, pretty neat idea. I agree the little gUSH pod is pretty neat, maybe one of the importers will see it and see if they can add it to thier imports.

I bought the UGF from a LFS. It is an Asian style UGF. They are called circulation tubes, originally intended to be ran with a powerhead.

Here is someone online that sells one.

The fan is from Mordalpus. It works great for a little tank. It keeps my tank 74ish on hot days. Plus it doesn't take up a lot of room over the tank.
