I like it too, it will be interesting to see how it looks when it has grown in some.

I'm personally a sucker for bright red cherry shrimp (Sakura, or painted fire red grade).

What kind of lighting do you have?
I was wondering how you grew that
micro- sword? I have Eco-complete
and root tabs, do you think I'll be
able to grow micro-sword in an outdoor
tank?

The lighting is a 23 watt CFL -E27 bulb. No CO2. No idea about how it will react in an outdoor tank.

Yes I'm keeping it under a fine mesh so
humidity can stay in for my orchids.
It still gets light 10-14 hours a day.

Thanks guys ! Abhra liked your idea, gonna pick some from guys here. Will add some shrimps too the mix of 1 male and 2-3 female. Earlier thought of keeping a Plakat, but then would look big for this setup.
