okay here it is!
completely unscaped chaos, with new black sand cap!



water sprite, various crypts, corkscrew vals, moneywort, a tiny bit of cabomba, java fern, floating creeping jenny that may or may not amount to nothing.

now, can you guys help me identify the front left (tiny little stems) left of the heater (reddish upper leaves) small one next to the slightly red, and then the one to the left of the heater?

thanks

also, rocks are coming in the mail to center piece this tank. they will have java moss once they arrive. any suggestions when I attempt a real scape?

I have quite a pond snail factory in this tank! it seems they are either plain, black with silver specs, or brown with gold. I like them a lot actually

update here
this tank is kind of all over the place, not much of a scape. uprooted plants the other day and was surprised to see many great root systems. hoping plants will keep growing and fill out
starting excel tomorrow morning! 1mL everyday except sundays as well

Exclamation I want to convert this to shrimp tank

This tank is a cluster with many types of plants.
I want to convert it to a shrimp tank!

So this will be a long time frame plan. Honestly I would be surprised if I got this done before December with school and everything, so I want this to be a good plan.

So it's a 10 gallon typical tank
I want to upgrade my lighting, thinking marine land double bright LEDs
probably means i will need the clear cover, or will the shrimp really jump ship?
Filtration I want a dual sponge filter OR?! maybe I can connect this 10 and my other 10 to a canister?
I have a good heater in there already
I want hardy shrimp only: suggestions?

No on the canister filter, but I'm thinking a HOB with a sponge intake and the sponge filter?
