Got myself a 30x30x30 Starfire Cube setup for a decent price.

It included the tank itself, the driftwood, an UP Aqua External 120, a feeding dish, some leftover Netlea substrate, and an IKEA desk light with a blue place mat.

The clean up of buying used stuff (:

Added 3 marimo balls in diagonal formation and 3 cholla wood pieces with a mini java fern on top:

Now I wait a month for the bio-film to establish (:

I'm thinking of either raising high quality snow white/golden bee shrimp or princess bee shrimp :D

Now I save up for whatever shrimp I choose!

Final changes of the tank was adding 3 rocks. Finished tank is now posted on the 1st post.

Decided to make the tank hold Snow White Bees.

Looks clean and simple, that filter's pretty interesting, HOB but sits below the top of the tank.

thank you shrimpzoo, I think that filter is brilliant, so unobstusive, plain and simple looking on the outside, but with all those different compartments for filter media, it's really professional, I don't think we can get that filter here in the uk :(

I love the design of your tank. I love everything about it. I will be keeping an eye on this thread :)

have you got any shrimp to go in it yet? :)
