I am completely new to FW and am starting a planted 8 gallon shrimp tank. (Had marine before)
I loved your shrimp tank that you said was your blank canvas.
Can you tell me what the grass/cover of that tank at that time and what you had to do to maintain it ? Does that cover need to be cut, etc ?
Finally, what lights are you using in those pictures ?
I live in Australia but with some luck I can find something similar to your cover.
