Thanks, I was wondering whether or not I should trim it down or keep it growing for a jungle look lol.

Hm.. what happened to your other tanks? What led you to break them down and have fish as well now?

lol the 5 gallon tank I gave to a friend and he turned it into a sump (reason: I wanted to upgrade to 10 gallon)

and this tank that we see right now is the same tank I had last time, I just revamped it.

I felt that the mid section/top part of my tank was kinda lonely so I decided I'd introduce some fish.

These fish actually leave the RCS alone and the RCS are always out in the open and freely going around doing their business (as seen in the vid). So I'm happy with my tank now.

I'm hoping someday I can get another tank and start super fresh lol. I'm thinking about getting another type of shrimp like CRS or white bee shrimp to really show a contrast in the red/green I already have in my tank. Then hopefully when I feel like I'm ready or have a bunch of spare time on my hands... implement CO2.

Just going to read up on white bee shrimp and look around for a seller (IRL + online) I'm leaning more towards them because they seem less demanding than CRS
