Pico Shrimp Tank

I can't remember the last time I posted a picture in the forums, but this is my Pico Shrimp/Nerite/Oto tank. It's an Azoo Razzle Dazzle tank with a Azoo Palm HOB filter and small CF clip on light. It has been set up and running for about 1 month and I want to keep it lightly planted to keep a clear view of the fauna. Hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.

Nice tank, what kind of plant(s) are in there? Substrate? Dose any ferts?

Got any pics of the livestock?

Thanks Brian. I only have a rhizome of trident java fern in there but will be adding more small low light plants (anubias and marimoball) in the future. With these plants I won't need to dose. The substrate is coral gravel/chips which is good for the nerite snails' shells. The only picture of the fauna is what is pictured.

Thanks, it is just under 1 gallon. This fit my need for a desktop pico aquarium.

Thank you.

The lone female Snowball shrimp became berried (carrying eggs) two days ago. I guess when the conditions are to their liking our shrimp will breed

Update:

You might have seen it at the A+ fish store display during the September meeting. This tank is still one of my healthiest and favorite tanks. The snowball shrimp, orange poso snails, horned nerite snails and mini ramshorn snails are also doing great. The only issue I have with this tank is that the tylo snails eat most of the plants I put in there, the only surviving fauna is the marimoball. They have eaten moss, java fern, bolbitis and riccia...I will try more plants and let you know what else works
