So the tank has had some MAJOR overhauls since I last updated. I've since upgraded to a pressurized Co2 system and a better light fixture. Added a bunch of new plants and many have filled in a lot. A...

If it's low tech, I HIGHLY recommend Anubias nana var. barteri (spelling?). It's got the big round leaves that Anubias Nana has and it's anubias so it's indestructible, but it's tiny sized. Petsmart...

I just got all the tech, so I'll probably hold off on a reactor for now. Plus it's for a nano tank, so I have to keep size in mind. If I ever replant one of my bigger tanks, I'll probably look into...

If it's for a small tank you might check out the Finnex Fugeray-R with red boost. They seem to work really well and I'll be ordering one in the near future. If it's for a bigger tank you might look...

If you want, you can add market bought shrimp. Just make sure it's uncooked and there's nothing added to it. I just de-shell them, toss them in the food processor, then scrape the chopped shrimp in a...

The acrylic backing might be prone to cracking under too much pressure, so I'd reinforce it while drilling. The chamber is a bit tight so I'm not sure how easy it'll be to pop some holes in there. If...
