Smile My 10-gallon Shrimp Tank

Well this tank has been cycling for approximately 6 months. I have driftwood pieces with some anubias on them. Also have java moss growing on a branch. Few miscellaneous ferns and crypts are scattered throughout the tank. Currently running a diy biological filter until my new sponge filters come in. Itís a low tech tank. Feel free to ask any questions and PLEASE give any advice. My shrimp are coming next week so look out for pics!

You're gunna run both filters for a while right? Otherwise all of your cycling effort will go to waste!

What do you mean? I was planning on running both full time. The diy one is just a project I was interested in. I'll keep it, but I want the sponge in as well because I don't trust myself that much lol.
