Bcarl's 5 Gallon Hex

I wanted to share my 5 gallon rimless hex tank with all of you on TPT. If you'd like to see the beginning feel free to see the link below.

Anyways here is the most up to date info. This tank is about 5 months old. It started very low tech, meant to be a low maintenance shrimp tank. Since breaking down my larger tanks temporarily I moved my Co2 tank and an additional light onto the tank making it pretty high tech but mediumish light. Here are the current details:

S. Repens
Pogo Erectus
A. Bonsai
AR Mini
A few buces (Brownie and one other kind)

Red cherries
Tiger shrimp


Finnex Stingray clip on
Current Sat + (or BML dimmed as low as possible)
Aquaclear 30
Brightwell substrate

Here are the two most recent pictures! Enjoy
