my spin on a fluval edge shrimp tank.

i set the tank up last night, i used plants, rocks, and water from my 10 g that this tank is replacing. i am eventually going to put shrimp in the tank but as of right now it only has my girlfriends betta in there.

ill post pictures of it planted tonight, i have to wait for the lighting to be right in the kitchen. hopefully the betta will cooperate

Lookin' good, can't wait to see more. When you get your shrimp, be sure to get the fluval edge pre-filter (black sponge) as it'll help sucking up any newborns.

3 days after initial set-up and you have expensive shrimp in the tank?...There is no way that tank is cycled.
