farmhand Every time I look at your tank, I forget to notice your plants.
After that I did notice them and it looks nice.

sjuapseorn well...

I don't know about all this planted tank stuff... Maybe a month or 3 from now I'll have something sweet to show. Right now i have a massive jungle of stuff with no order or reason to placement.

The tetra seem pretty content though.. the bigger ones seem to like the wisteria in the back, they're always hiding in there until feeding time, then it's a shark frenzy :P

hopefully I'll get some inspiration, and get this tank cycled, etc...

As of today..

Thanks to Hoppy for the light advice!
Tank looks much better with this K combo. (IMHO)

Loop I was just thinking about getting the Finnex 4G for a shrimp tank. Why don't you think it's big enough for shrimp? I thought it would be fine.

Original setup w/10000K & Actinic

The Matrix

Started a bigger tank...

I realized that the 4g wasn't going to be even close to big enough to be a humane shrimp tank.. so I spent some money lol..

I'm going to pretty much just post pics as new posts in this journal so this is the 56K warning etc..
