I will add a sponge filter for surface agitation to remove oils, plus the shrimp love foraging on them.

You've got an awesome looking tank!

Bigals, Amazon, GLA, and Marine Depot I use frequently.

As far as livestock and plants go, check the for Sale/Trade forum here and also the list of vendors.

What do you have for media in the tank?

Can you replace the pump, maybe? Put in a smaller pump, or one you can adjust the rate? I'm not very familiar with the tanks.

Are you going to be hand sanding the wood?

I'm not sure what the bark is like but, if it were me, I would start light and then figure it out from there. Start with 150 or 120 and see how it goes.

Wow. I thought I had a crazy over-filtered shrimp tank, but you sir have me beat.

On a 20L, I'm running an Eheim 2215 loaded w/ sponges, matrix and purigen. I also have 2 sponge filters as well.
