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?

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

marley77 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.

Fishies_in_Philly That's going to grow in nice, after the crypts finish melting and start growing again

marley77 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).

Fishies_in_Philly 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.

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.

Is it something you could take a hack saw and cut a branch I wonder?

ALSO, some tank pics, one from today, the rest from earlier in july when my shrimp had just given birth
