Holes in the bottom but not on the sides. On balance I like it that way because I can stick one planter to another

I used aquasoil in the boxes, but i'm wondering if it's giving the plants enough nutrients. I put a few slivers of root tablets in a couple of the boxes to see if those plants respond.

How many for a tank this size? Will I get fun behavior and/or spawning? And will they eat shrimp? (That's not disqualifying, just curious.)

Hi all - After six years of nature aquarium-style scapes in my 57g show tank, I wanted to try something different. In poking around the usual web sources for inspiration, I came across the idea of...
