Just the sponge filter. Was wondering if there was anyway to get some carbon in there?

i have 10 Biomedia rings and some filter floss in it , you could probably make a sandwhitch in-between some filter floss and the sponge though

Nice! We have similar taste. Your tank looks great.

Carbon isn't necessary for shrimp tanks.

That looks like a neat scape, white!

Is it feasible to house a small school of CPD in this tank alongside several yellow shrimp, or is that pushing it?

They're kinda jumpers.. This is a very small tank for fish. Even my super tiny least killies seemed cramped.

I've been wondering if I could do some dwarf emerald rasboras in mine. I'm curious to see what people think. It might be too small.

Crazy scape. Love every bit of it. Consider the zoomed501 or another azoo palm.

Thanks for the compliments guys! Im hopping to be able to find some blue jelly shrimps some where online to stock it with and move the thai micro crabs from my other tank.

Just curious on what other people are stocking these great little tanks with?

I'd bet almost all of these are stocked with shrimp of some sort. A few actually keep a betta or micro fish in them. They make perfect shrimp tanks.

The list got updated. I added a few people I missed. Please accept my apologies if you're not where you wanted.

White blaze, this is really best suited for shrimp, snails a betta.

I think there's a possibility --if it was well planted-- to fit a single DP. But you'd need a cannister filter, I think.
