What light did you get? I had a real hard time finding the "right" one.

is it 18in? 24 or 36w?

Nice light. This tank is not the easiest to find one for it.

Here is the tank scaped and planted. Staro in the back and HC everywhere else. I have some purple bamboo that I will be adding to the back corner, but I'm not 100% sure it's going to "fit in" with the look of this tank. I want a little color other than the green carpet and background plant. Opinions welcome.

To anyone thinking about HC, it's a love hate relationship. Those that have done this before know what I'm talking about.

Thanks guys.

So I need some opinions on what type of shrimp to get? I'm leaning towards CRS and Bee Shrimp, but I also really like BT's. What does anyone think about Sulawesi Shrimp?

Also what shrimp can you mix without cross breeding?
