Evo's 20 Gallon Long Shrimp Tanks

Hey everybody, this is my first journal so I apologize in advance if I break any rules, any formatting issues, etc.

I'll start out by saying that I had originally just wanted to get a few red cherry shrimp for my 12 gallon, but as I learned more about them I got bit by the shrimp bug.... and here we are!

Tanks: 20 Gallon Long from Petco $1/G
Lights: Beamswork Single Bright LED
Substrate: ADA Amazonia
Filters: 2x XY-2822 Sponge Filters (cheap!!)
Heaters: Aquatop 75W

Here are the tanks as of 7/22. Right now I'm just holding down the driftwood with rocks while I wait for them to sink.

Since this is my first time keeping shrimp I'm thinking I'll just stick to RCS for now, and work my way up to some of the more delicate shrimps. But as for now I'm just going to have to be patient and let the cycle do it's thing. I'm following the steps here for my cycle, http://www.theshrimpfarm.com/article...l-amazonia.php. Does anybody know if the ammonia from the aquasoil is enough to cycle the tanks? Or will I need to add some? Any advice or suggestions are much apreciated!
