Beautiful. I'm getting my 45p today and doing a low-med light moss set up but thinking I'll add some stems like yours.

good luck? huh
tank is now 8 mons old and going great i do 1/8 water changes once every 2 mons and filter cleaning feed every 3 days and trim it back about every 2 mons. water top off every few days and that is it.

I wanted a slow low growing tank for shrimp to thrive in, and boy do they do.

I am setting up a similar tank as an experiment but minus a scape. low tech very basic tank to see if it helps shrimp thrive

Wow, I really am liking this tank. Looks fairly similar to what I want to do wth my 60P.

thanks i am enjoying it, i feel like a mini forest garden that is just let run wild.
dont mind the sun shade back drop we view our tanks from both sides as this sits near a pony wall to the other room.
the lack of maintenance and easy of upkeep is what i really like. heck i don't even scrub the inside glass, i let the clean up crew do all the work.
