CO2: None

Flora

Moss Balls (Chladophora aegagropila)

(8) Red Cherry Shrimp (Caridina davidi var. red)
(1) Horned Nerite (Clithon corona)

Ferts

Hopefully it will do well. CDP's are one of my favourite fish!
Good luck...

Just kidding... Finding room for that in the 40 breeder. Here is a shot of the tank after setting it up. Hoping to get a miniature moss tree and should be adding some shrimp tomorrow.

Any suggestions?

Added some more rocks and another little moss ball. Haven't had any luck yet with the cherry's breeding but in reality they have only been in there a month or so. thinking about trying to find some crypt species or another low light plant that will do well. The java moss is starting to fill in as well.
