My 15l Opti-White Shrimp/Moss tank

This is an Aqua Essentials 10x8x8" Opti-white Nano tank.

After 3 hours of tidying up the silicone (that was very very messy) with a surgeons knife (mind the fingers) I think its looks pretty good, I am not sure yet what to do with it and if I am going to use the Naturesoil or not.

Some photos to start off the journal haha

Help is always at hand:

I am using an hangon filter that I purchased from Living waters and an 11w lamp that I got cheaply at Ikea.

This is the light unit (11w):

and what it looked like on the day of set-up:

Well a few weeks later and a lot of mosses later, here is how the tank is looking:

Few days ago during feeding time and before shipping out some of the reder shrimp:

Few shots today:

Full tank

Cherry on Coral Pellia

Assassin Snail (Thanks Luis and Ricky)

Various shots:

Thanks for looking

Very nice job on the tank!
