Got some CO2 equipment today!
20 ounce tank
90 gram temporary co2 tanks (need these until I can commute to my local paintball field to fill up my 20 ounce)
Fluval airline tubing (never use silicone)

I hooked up my diffuser and bubble counter to my tank and it's looking good

I'm diggin' the scape, and the plans for the plants. Also, a school of harlequin rasboras would look great in there, but I would personally have either those OR the tetras, as I don't think that 11.4 gallons is enough room for a school of both fish. Harlequins will get pretty big, an inch and a half or two inches.

Definitely looking forward to following this tank.

Thanks for the feedback, i guess a school of h rasboas and a few ottos w/ the shrimp would look great!

My order or plants came in earlier today, so I completed my scape and will be filling the tank. The hemianthus callitrichoides were all fine, as were the red rubins and cryptocoryne parva. The staurogyne repens were a bit dried up, hopefully they'll recover and be healthy.

Look up Galexy Rasboa's. You might like them instead of the other Rasboa's and they are smaller so you could get away with a larger school of them.
I've been eye balling that 11.4 Mr Aqua myself. Not that I'd be likely to try anything like your doing/w it.
So I'll be watching this one for sure.
