|Disher||I like the idea, ill give it a try. How would I keep my pieces of driftwood in place without falling over?|

Have you considered moving your hardscape so it starts in one corner or have it "bouquet" out of the center?? An example

|dreamwallaby||looking really good|

I added three neon tetras and some red Ludwig that came to me looking like complete crap, hopefully it pulls through! There's also another piece of driftwood. I think I'll add a red lily bulb, I enjoy the look of the large, spotted red leaves they put off.

Yes I have! I'm at a loss on that one lol Any suggestions? It's pretty empty and boring right now.
I've considered some guppies until the tank is overgrown and ready for shrimp.

|tex627||Have you considered adding more hardscape? That little amount is going to get covered and hidden very very quickly!|

Thank you Skindy. My other two shrimp tanks or "bowls" took me a long time to finally keep rcs alive and well. A lot of trial and error!
The dwarf sag I transplanted looks droopy and unhealthy. Is this a normal occurrence until the plant acclimates to the new environment?

|skindy||Nice start! I also like your shrimp tanks a lot!|

|dreamwallaby||Yeah, I kept it stock and unless I have light issues (which I don't foresee) I won't be changing anything. I love the lights, they really make the colors pop on my endlers.|

Thank you :-D
Did you keep yours stock? Any suggestions for plant livestock? Don't you just love the shimmer the LED light gives off!?

|dreamwallaby||What a nice start I have the same tank, I love them.|

Threw in some micro sword I had as a floater, only because it wouldn't stay put! Hopefully it takes off now that I have it planted firmly. Now it's time to sit and watch it grow!

Eheim Aquastyle 9 - just getting started
This tank will stay low tech, I have no desire to ever do CO2 but I sure do love the effects of it. I'll be running this tank as is, just how it came out of the box. I just filled the tank with a bottom layer of organic miracle grow soil and will probably let that sit over night. Plan to cap it with eco complete tomorrow. Attachment 61713
I have two other small planted shrimp tanks where I'll be stealing livestock from, a 3g jar and a .75g vase.
The plants going in are:
I'd love to throw a splash of red in there, any suggestions for red low light plants?
With my other two tanks I planted after I capped the soil. Am I doing it wrong? Should I be planting before I cap? Thanks everyone! I'll be sure to keep progress pictures updated.
