First Planted Shrimp Tank

I originally started off with just a couple plants in a large jar with 4 shrimps and a stowaway snail.



Now i have a 30 x 30 x 30 tank that i have set up.







After a day of settling down.
Yes that is a marble chess piece. I soaked the tree for a day but was still floating slightly.





Contents:
3 - red cherry shrimp (having trouble sexing them)
1 - Snail (i think its a pond snail) i'll try and get a picture of it

3 x small moss balls

2 x cryptocoryne undulata

1 x java moss on mesh

1x flame moss on mesh

Peacock moss on tree
Dwarf Hairgrass
Anubias nana bonsai
Small piece of Indian almond leaf

A bunch of Salvinia Natans

Telanthera Cardinalis, I received them for free and hope they will survive even though i have read they may need Co2 a diffuser.

Pump interpet nano
Dual sponge filter
Small Bonsai wood tree
Random led lights from amazon

Substrate: tetra active substrate ( only bought this because it was the cheapest on eBay)

I did also have some cryptocoryne lucens but i left it as one plant and unfortunately the roots rotted.

Nice. I see you have a couple tetras in there, always thought its better to have at least 5. I was thinking about getting a couple fish but that would require water changes.

You should get a small piece pf moss in there. Everyone loves a bit of moss

Yes, I know about the neons. I used to have 14 in my 55 but now I'm​ down to 2, I decided to move them out and into the 55 to make sure the water was stable enough for shrimp. I plan on adding 6-8 more after I add shrimp. Also, I would love to add moss but can't find any locally.

Ellobiopsidae parasite, commonly called a "green fungus"....

Also, bladder snail, not pond snail. (most likely)

Everyone calls them pond snails, they look near identical!


As I understand it though, the main difference between them is the way the shell rotates. One to the left, the other to the right.
