It's looking really good already. I see that you opted not to use the background. I took mine out, too.

I think your Ebi will be very easy on the electric bill. The light is only 13 watts, the...

Hi, Ekliu. Yes, I've seen them. They're very pretty and I might pick up one for shrimp.

If you're looking for a rimless one, you might consider the Dymax IQ3, which is similar. It's acrylic,...

I have an Ebi and it's a beautiful tank. It's very easy to plant, too, because you have good access to it. There is a removable glass top. It's plenty big enough for shrimp and plants are stunning...

Here are a couple of photos of my Fluval Ebi. I'm not much of a photographer, so it does look better in person. I don't have any shrimp in my Ebi -- they're actually in my other tanks and the Ebi,...

I have endlers, which are considered by many to be a relative of the guppy, only smaller, and they certainly eat shrimp. For a long time I thought that they didn't -- but it turned out that that was...
