-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

So far i've been dosing Rootmedic liq. fertz and excel, to jump start the tank.
After I add my shrimps, i'll probably dose but very minuinum.

Here is a picture of it about the first week, sorry for the crappy cell picture.

Growth is about double that now, I actually got to trim some plants.
And some plants arent in that photo, that are in there now.
I'll take some better photos later tonight and show before and after trimming photos.



Updated pictures - 12/29/11







Don't mind the uneven lighting fixture, the PC is heavy but I already had the light fixture so I just used that.
Also I havent had a chance to acutally plant the HC and the S. Purple floating on top I just got in today.

I plan on having muti types of moss tiles on the wall to grow out.

Make sure to link those journals into your sig! OEBT will really pop with yellow, white, or red shrimp! Rilis?

ya i'll do that now, I already have red rilis in a 2.5g with my high grade crs but i think thats what i'm going do is move them over there, Since the 2.5 is overcrowded and i'm pretty sure CRS dont like to be crowded when breeding.

That's cool how the sig now updates on all other posts as well. They didn't use to do that. Good job mods!

I think the colors of the rilli (red/clear) with the OEBT (blue/black) would be a sweet contrast ! Thought... your plants are also multi-colored in there lol. I notice that GUSH orb thingy too!
