I originally started this tank on the side as a home for Crystal Red shrimp I bought online. The little shrimp are adorable to watch and require virtually no care, I barely feed them but twice a week. The tank has an ADA pollen glass diffuser for CO2 but because buying the CO2 cartridges is pricey I substituted FLUVAL's CO2 cartridges which I buy online every couple of months. the tank does require a lot of trimming as the Hydrocoytle NANA VER has overtaken my glosso and the bolbitis fern rapidly branches out covering my light source. The goal here was to recreate a wild forest scene.

The light source is my first foray into LED, this is an Aquaray purchased from Greenleaf Aquariums. Since using this light I've grown to like my Kessil Amazon LED fixture better.
