10G Shrimparium

So I've had this tank set up for months and I just now got around to buying a camera to photograph it, unfortunately the camera sucks, so once I get paid again I will be returning it and getting a better one, but in the meantime here we go
Substrate: Peat moss capped with ecocomplete
lighting: marineland reef capable LED
Co2: pressurized starting tomorrow
ferts: EI dosing once my ferts come in the mail
Filter: I got it from a dumpster. Elite 35 only a sponge on it.
Flora: crypts, java moss, and Eleocharis Belem
Fauna: RCS, 3 bee shrimp, 3 harlequin rasboras, and 2 horned nerites

Not sure if you know but using CO2 will severely impact the rate at which your shrimps breed. Dosing ferts will not however.

Some say that ferts can be detrimental. http://www.planetinverts.com/Dosing%...%20Shrimp.html

Send a message via Yahoo to shrimpnmoss
your bee shrimps might or might now breed in your tanks...but you RCS will have no problems whatever you do to your tank...

I don't think I have any male bees so I'm not horribly concerned.

Nice tank BTW; just wondering, what camera/lens is it?

Currently out of the hobby

it's a vivitar vivicam 7022. I'm totally returning it though, it sucks down AAA batteries like nobody's business and it has no zoom. I guess I shouldn't expect much for $50
