So I have been working on setting up my 20L tank getting it ready for CRS that are on the way. They will be here in 2-3 days. This is my first shrimp tank so I have been getting a ton of great advice and been doing a ton of research to ensure the tank is perfect for the soon to be new inhabitants. Below are my paramaters.
The tank is a 20L
Ferts are Half EI NilocG macro/micro
Light is Beamswork DHL 6500K 30" Photoperiod 6 hours, will change to 8 when co2
Substrate is Black Diamond Blasting Sand
co2 none yet just waiting on co2 splitter. Will be doing 15ppm of co2 in this tank
Plants range from Amazon swords, Moss balls, Java Moss, Pearlweed, Ludwigia repens, S Repens, red Crypto Wendtii, Hygro Fern, Ozelot sword, Hygrophila lancea, Bacopa monnierii
For filtration I am using a Fluval 206 canister filter that has Purigen for chemical media and Sera Siporax for bio media.
Here is a pic of the CRS that are on the way
