Default Jake's Got A New High-Tech Ebi

Picked up a new Ebi a few weeks ago and finally got it 90% planted tonight. Doing a dry start to get things grown in well.

The details:

  • Fluval Ebi, background removed
  • Eheim 2213
  • Pressurized CO2 - dual-stage regulator, solenoid, etc
  • 3 Fluval 13w Clip Lights
  • Fluval Shrimp Stratum
  • Osmocote Plus gelcaps
  • Random lace rock
  • EI dosing

Plants:

  • Utricularia graminifolia
  • Staurogyne repens
  • Vallisneria nana will line the back of the tank once it's flooded

Critters:

Will eventually be home to a bunch of Red Cherry Shrimp or Painted Fire Reds (if I can find the PFRs!), a Nerite or two, a bunch of blue Ramshorns. Really going for lots of bright, contrasting color.

Here's a rough look:





Not entirely sure how I feel about yet another UG tank but I think I'll give it a go.

Hope you stick around to see how this tank turns out.

Jake
