4.7g Shrimp tank


So this is the smallest endeavor I've set about in my aquarium keeping life, and its also only my second planted tank. For xmas, my gf gave me a copy of a nice setup we saw in a LFS. It's one of the decorative childrens tanks (This), with all the trimmings removed. Also, I've got an aquaclear 20 and a 12" current CF with 10k/6.7k split light. I'm currently dosing excel 4-5x/week, with flourish, trace, and iron 1x week. 25-30% WC every 5 days or so.

The tank residents, currently, are all RCS. I recieved about 50 from the SnS, thanks to mistern for the awesome reds.

My plant list is:
Ricci front left corner
Dwarf hairgrass around that.
Hemianthus micranthemoides in the bottom right (might actually be HU, not sure).
Ocelot in the back right corner (probably will replace with something smaller, but its there for now)
and 3 un-IDed plants along the back left.

Better be careful dosing excel. I think it is pretty easy to overdose and kill your shrimp.

I'm pretty careful, I use a dropper to measure out the .5ml I need.

Thanks! Spotted it in a tank at a LFS, and talked them into selling it to me. It's a perfect fit.
