BlueJack I have shifted to the low maintenance lifestyle here lately. The plants are all anubias with a few bronze crypts. The lights are just MR11 LED's from Lowe's. I hardly do any water changes, mostly top-offs. I found that guppies do well in this tank/setup.

This is actually my favorite tank because it never has algae and is a pleasure to look at from all angles. It'll be a cool office tank for you.

BlueJack Filled up with water. I'm planning on adding 5 lyretail guppies some time this week.

BlueJack After seeing a nice edge with sand and anubia's, I decided to replicate that tank as best as possible. Trimming, adding ferts, doing water changes is a real hassle with this tank. So, this seems to be the best fit for what I'm looking for. It was also a good opportunity to cull some of my CRS and leave only the darkest reds.

Left my Flourite black sand in the middle and surrounded it with playsand.

Attached all my anubias nana to this piece

Some Micro sword

Dry setup

Added a Black cardboard for the background

BlueJack I haven't seen them picking on any shrimp....but I'm sure if it can fit in their mouth they'll eat it. So, I would guess they eat the tiny tiny baby shrimps. Not so bad since they're reproducing like crazy.

sssnel How do your guppies and shrimp get along? Tank looks great.

sketch804 Wow I agree with someone up there, this is the single most lushest Edge I have ever seen! and that upgrade on the lighting is awesome DIY! keep it up! cant wait to see more pix of this!

BlueJack Added two bow tie guppies...and some micro sword. I'm gonna let it establish some good roots then give it a haircut. Right now it's way to tall.
