Hello everyone!

They are both Shrimp Tanks, both with DIY UGF and AKADAMA DRL soil. Both dosed with ~1/6 PPSpro and the main 30gal tank has 1bp2s pressurized CO2.
I Have CRS SS, CBS SSS, OEBTs, Blue Velvets in the big tank and Fire Neon Yellows in the small tank.

This thread is mostly for my own records, Check out the link provided at the end of the post for an interesting read.

Nano 6gal:


Main 30gal:


plants:
blyxa japonica
lobelia cardinalis
assorted mosses
anubias nana petite

Really liking your hardscape on your iwagumi. Big fan of rocks rising out of the water. Also like the way you negotiated that UGF. Doubt you ever face any clogging issues with that setup. I kind of regret not following through and going UGF on my latest project. Will have to go that route next time for sure.

Sunyang: If you mean the CRS tank, I have a sponge in the intake and fluval biomedia in there mostly, there is also a 1/2 coarse sponge sheet. There is frogbit and Utricularia foliosa floating inside in the media compartment and the other plants are planted in the "cascade" only... It's mostly Xmas moss.

Oh, there is about a table spoon of activated carbon in a mesh baggy right before everything else. (I've observed clearer water using this)

I will have to tear apart my bigger tank when we move out next month, I will upgrade to a 403b sunsun filter and run a similar but bigger UGF.

Thanks for the kudos!

Update for the iwagumish project:

I DESTROYED IT.

I found that it was planaria infested and bleached the heck out of everything.
It's currently as a hopeful dry start, but I think it's not going to work because I overkilled the bleach with the plants substrate and everything.
Whatever.... I will move out of this apt soon so one less tank to worry about.

I bought the tank used from a member of a local forum. It was infested with planaria, I saw them and then I bleached everything.

I don't know if I want to sell it. My wife wants me to sell it.
But I said nope.

I love the second one! Unfortunately I can't keep CRS 'cause they're too expensive >:L and I don't want to risk them dying when I can't even keep RCS.
