Nanoguy's 3g Low-Tech Spec

So PetCo had a sale the other day on the Fluval Spec. I was hoping to set this up in my office but after I found out that "aquariums" were not allowed it found its way to my counter. I had to throw it together the other day for some guppy fry and a few shrimp I got off a guy that wouldn't have made it in my 120g.

Finally got around to planting it this weekend with some leftovers from a breakdown and my 120g and some stuff I had lying around. Currently everything is stock with the addition of a heater.

Tank: 3g Fluval Spec
Light: Stock
Pump: Stock
Heater: 10w fixed temp
Substrate: Mr. Aqua soil

Inhabitants:
About a dozen guppy fry
1 ghost shrimp
4 unknown shrimp (see pic)

Plants:
Random stuff from other tanks, some may not make it with the stock light but we'll see.

Took a few pics last night. Everything looking good so far. Can't wait to get the guppy fry out of the tank (assuming I can catch them) so I can start adding more shrimp.

So I decided to go ahead and pick up a few more shrimps. Added 10 cherries from a store in Houston, a couple of them already berried. We'll see how this goes. Please ignore the algae.
