My 20gal Tiger Tank

Finally finish my long awaited tank, this tank cost me an arm and a leg to stock... its about 2 months in the making. Lots of pics, enjoy......

Set-Up:
20gal Rimless
crush lava rocks on top ADA soil
Asian Style under gravel filtration w/ eheim 2217
24" T5HO pink/6500k
some easy plants and moss

Shrimps:
Blue/Blonde Tigers
Black Tigers high & low grade
Golden Tigers

This tank has been cycling for at least a month, I started out fresh, no co2 what so ever, ph around 6-7, temp 72-76, TDS under 100-150.

I put all of my tiger shrimps together hoping they can cross breed, never done this before but if the baby comes out ugly then I'll split them up. But if somehow it enhance the genes and come out nicer shrimps, I think it'll be worth the risk. We'll see what happens..... stay tune!
