Swissian's 58g Shrimp Tank

Just wanted to share the current iteration of my 58 gallon show tank. I got this tank back in 2006 and have finally turned it into a shrimp tank.

Current inhabitants are 2 Khuli loaches, 2 LFABP, 1 common pleco, OEBT and PFR.

Here it is back in Jnauary of last year:

Shrimps:





Current issues with this tank involve huge amounts of clado algae. After leaving the tank at home while away at college it became neglected and still is struggling to recover. Every week I end of pulling out handfuls of algae. The photo period is only 6 hours a day with only 2 out of 4 bulbs turned on.

Just for giggles, here is the tank back in 2006 when it was first filled up:


I am not sure I am happy with the current layout but I am not quite sure how to fix it...

Update on the shrimpies! I currently have 2 berried OEBT! I pulled them out to the breeder box because I will be moving in a few months and want to be able to catch the babies easily!
