My Akadama 20L BTOE Tank

I recently got some BTOE's from Speedie so I needed to setup another tank. Akadama was the no brainer because I sell it. I am still cycling the tank so no shrimp in there at this time. Here are the specs:

Filtration:
Eheim 2211 though PVC underground filter with mattenfilter separating the tank

Substrate:
Akadama

Lighting:
Right now a 24" 2x24 watt t5ho light
I am looking for something that is 30" t5NO with legs(let me know if you have any suggestions)

Flora:
Moss and maybe some crypts

Fauna:
BTOE's in the smaller side
Havent decided for sure on the other side, most likely some OEBT's

On to the pictures:

Nice looking tank! Is the Poret foam just wedged in there, or is it attached in some way? Reason I'm asking is because I'd like to do something similar for some shrimp!

It is just wedged in there. It is in there pretty solid, doesnt budge when I push on it. Its not going anywhere.

Nice, I'm definitely considering this for an old 20g in my garage.

Okay, so is BTOE Black tiger orange eyed and OEBT Orange eyed blue tiger?
