8 gallon nuvo dirted shrimp tank

This is my 8 gallon nuvo intended for nano saltwater but I decided to make it a Walstad style shrimp tank. I started with some organic potting soil that's been mineralized and heavily sifted, topped with a mix of pea gravel and planted tanks.coms Amazon natural. I used the light it came with, a heater and filter floss in it's built in sump. Around 15 Red cherry shimp were introduced 2 weeks after setup and they had successful breeding within a month.

Nice tank it makes a better planted than it would a reef tank.

I tried salt water in it to no avail but the plants love the light so it's fresh.
