nice scape. let it grow out and monitor its progress over the next several weeks.

Have you given much thought to other livestock after the tank is filled?

Excel is toxic to shrimp if you overdo it so I would be careful. Personally, I would stop dosing after you get them in although there are some other hobbyists who dose small amounts every few days with no problems. I just wouldn't risk it :P

Nice start, I can't wait to see how the hairgrass grows in!
