I should learn to take better pictures, but here it is! Had some major glare going on from the windows and front door.. oh well.

Redid the scape into something more like what I had envisioned.
Going to add more moss over time and whatever else I feel will look good. Not going to rush this one.
I propped up some SS mesh in the back right against some cholla wood. Figured the wood would be a sweet hideout for the shrimp, and when it grows in it will look more "hilly."

Dang! That is one sick piece of driftwood! Nice start on the tank.
Can't wait to see how this turns out!

Alright.. so here is how it stands right now. It's not going to stay this way. I wasn't sure if I wanted to keep the plants low-growing for scale reasons, but I just don't think I like it without some stems. Plus, all of these plants came from my other aquariums, so I think I want something new.

As for crs, they always work. Their colours always pop do well against any setting.
I'll totally be following this tanks progress

As for shrimp, I'll probably go with CRS.

|jamntoast||its a shame that drift wood isn't thicker i was kind of shocked to see it from the side view. still an amazing piece, i can totally imagine the shrimp crawling around on it like a shrimp-hive if you will. what kind of shrimp are you thinking?|

A small update, not much happening yet! I slapped some mini pellia and UG on the driftwood to see what would happen, doing a short dry start with that. The tank is partially filled because I attached some moss to some SS mesh and felt like throwing it in. Not sure if I want to keep all the plants fairly low growing or not, but it's low-tech and low/medium lighting so we'll see.
Since I haven't mentioned any specs yet:
mr. aqua 11.4 aquarium
27 watt archaea fixture
Going with a sponge filter and a zoo med 501 for filtration (have both, we'll see how it goes)
fluval shrimp stratum
Some pictures for now!
See how tall and thin it is?
Bonus pics! My homemade batlight
