Beautiful setup. I'm talking my wife out of plastic and into real plants for her beta tank which is the same size. Put a PC bulb in it and should be good to go.

*2867 Views?! Everybody and their cousin wants to admire this tank! I don't blame them, it is a very unusual and healthy looking aquascape. Crystal clear with very dense plants & the happiest cherry shrimp in town. Especially impressive because of its very small size--Congratulations and well done, Cydric!*

Very nice. I thought it was a 20 gallon tall when I first saw it! I love the dwarf crays! Are they C. shufeldtii?
