Schkrimpz Looks pretty good, I know my shrimp love climbing stem plants alot, maybe put some of those along the back of the tank?

Elppan Water starting to clear after flooding!

Added some plants, thoughts? Suggestions?
Yes, that is a very fancy homemade sponge filter on one side, and a Fluval nano filter on the other side.

Consider moving the driftwood off center just a bit.

Either way, better get some plants in there; this is the PLANTED tank forum after all.
Ha, yeah I know, It's planted now, waiting for dust to settle to grab a pic.

I may add them back in, one at a time or so, depending. I've stuffed a bunch of plants in, and a bit of water, when it clears some I'll take another picture and get some more feedback.

Elppan's 15g Shrimp Hotel

Hey everyone! I figured I'd start a tank journal for my newest tank. It's a 15g that I'm working on turning into a shrimp habitat!

This is a dirted tank, here's my miracle gro organic potting mix, wetted down and surrounded with some pool filter sand



Covering the dirt with a sand cap


I think I'm going to be adding a little black Tahitian moon sand mixed in, still not sure yet.

9/25 - finished adding plants and flooded, picture in post below.
