I've never noticed any, I'd suspect my angelfish scared them away trying to catch them... Or my cats get them before they can reach the tank.

It's been a few years since I posted a new aquarium. I finally decided to convert my 125 from a dart frog viv, back to aquarium. I'm still working on hard scape. Here are my 2 main pieces I may be working with. It will be a black water tank, not sure yet if I am going se Asian or sa.

Hey everyone.

Here's some pretty poor quality pictures of my 20 long. Thanks to Fishies_in_Philly for most of the plants.

Right now there is some number of red cherry shrimp greater than or equal to 4, a pond snail, and another snail I haven't seen before (pictured).

Got some more plants in from Bamaplants. Picked up 5 Panda Cories and 5 Otos from petsmart. I count about 6 red cherry shrimp including one berried female.

I need to cut that microsword up and plant it more evenly spaced to get a better carpet going. I'll have to order some proper aquascaping tools.

Looking good! If you need more shrimp, let me know, I seem to have had a population boom

Hi All,
New to the planted tank Hobby. I set this up Thursday.
Wanted to know if anybody has any Ideas to improve this.
The tank was cycled with a few plants for three weeks.
Thank you

It depends, what do you want to improve? Are you happy with it? And what are the specs of the tank? Size? Light? Co2 or no? Ferts?

I think it looks pretty good. The rock on the right looks a little out of place. The plants look pretty healthy from that shot. Got any closer shots?

I'm convinced my shrimp want to live in the filter. I tried turning the flow down to 1/2 on the AC70 but they're back in the filter again. Maybe I should get a sponge cover or some mesh or something.
