10 Gallon Shrimp Tank - new pictures 04/17/11

Okay, so after many postponements on my part I'm finally getting some shrimp. Well, I think I have this tank setup perfect now. The Tetra internal filter is still in there because I am seeding the new filter i just bought.

Specs:
10 Gallon w/ Glass Canopy
Zoomed 501 Canister Filter
Stealth 50W Heater

Tetra filter is temporary



You will notice below how I covered the intake on the zoomed. I picked up a pack of Aquaclear foam pieces and cut it out so I could insert the intake straight into it. it worked perfect.



Any input is welcome. I'm planning to purchase some more sand today.

Got my shrimp, just haven't been able to get a good picture yet. I have both PFR and CRS (only one crs though). Will try and get a good picture in the next two days after I rescape it.

Ok, time for an update because this tank is doing so well.
Specs:
10 Gallon
Glass Top
25W Desk Lamp (PC 6700K)
Zoomed Canister Filter

I'm using some filter foam to cover the intake of the filter

Sand substrate
1 Amazon Sword
2 Anubius Nana (need to replant them as they shifted during my last water change)
Sunset Hygro
Dwarf Sag
Driftwood w/ moss on it

3 New plants that are floating as I have no idea what they are or if I'm going to keep them in this tank.

Occupants are:
Painted Fire Reds (not sure on how many)
2 x CRS (hoping they breed)

And too many snails, the snails will be making a trip to my 40B w/ yoyo loaches next water change.

So, without further ado, here are the pictures.
