Nubster's RCS tank log

I have a bunch of RCS that should be arriving tomorrow...got the tank up and running. It's low tech at the moment. 20T with 55w of 6700k PC lighting and an AquaClear 50 running sponges and Purigen. Black sand substrate. No ferts or CO2 at the moment.

Plants include:

Narrow Leaf Java fern
Java Fern Windelov
Handful of crypts
Some Pygmy Chain Sword
Christmas moss
Couple springs of Sunset hygro

MTSnails and probably some pond snails
Shrimp
No fish

That's it for now.

Crappy cell phone pic...

Shrimp arrived today. Not sure how many but there's a bunch. I bought 35. Only one DOA, not bad. They are active as heck, swimming all around exploring the tank. Most are tiny but there are a few larger ones included a berried female so that's exciting. Tried to grab some pics but they won't sit still. I dropped my camera too and think I messed it up...I need to send it in for repair
