Ok guys here is my 20 gallon shrimp tank. Been set up for around 6 months. Just did a replant a couple weeks ago:

and another;

Pics dont do the tank justice, but here is the run down.

All glass 20h

Will be housing a colony of PFR cherries mixed grades

At this time it is planted with Dwarf Hair grass, Blyxa Jajopica, a couple Nymphea spcs (if I can get them to grow), And some camboba. will keep you posted with updates as they come along.

Well, Here it is an update starting with a blank slate. After my timers going haywire and no time. I had a die off. All plants are being replaced, no shrimp any more ( not yet anyway, Save one 7 year old ammano ). Plants are coming from my 55 include, Various Crypts, Hygro Polysperma "Sunset" , Micriantha Lotus, and some star leaf shaped Plant.

I have to take down my 55 so all plants and the 2 plecos have a new home in the 20. Here are the plants;

I just don't have time for running Multiple tanks right now and I have to repair the drywall in the alcove anyway so the 55 has to come down. All stats for this tank's equipment are same as above for now with exception I added a fluval heater. So follow along as I replant this 20 an hope to get back into the hobby even if it is on a small scale.

Okay so I have been trying to restart in the hobby for a while. Thanks to a couple members here and my Wife I am off to a good start this time. So for my birthday I was able to get a Finnex 24/7 planted plus Fixture . As well as some plants from BruceF, dmare, And Aboutfish.

So here is where I started last week;

Here is a weeks worth of growth in 24/7 mode;

And today's Replant and trim;

The Ludweiga "Ruby", Is in the back behind the logs, With about 10-12 new Crypt Spiralis, and Balinese. I have the Bacopa, on the right and a bunch of different stuff in here. I will be posting on wensdays as I have Dubbed Wensday as "Weekly waterchange Wensdays" so Hopefully I can keep up on the tank and get some new enjoyment out of the Hobby once again :)

Also Here is a Photo Bomb of the Helper,

She will be 7 soon enough and may get here own tank for her birthday.

Let me know what you guys think
