new 40g breeder

well i took down the 29 gallon cube just wasnt enough room to keep me from getting bored.

started the 40b with mgops and the cycled flourite from the 29g
its 1inch mgops and about 1 inch flouite

same 6 23 watt spiral cfls
same plants the baby tears was getting to be a nice carpet
honestly the other plants i dont really like. someday ill order the ones i want
co2 fluval 88g converted to 20 oz paintball filled for 3.99
no hardscape unless you count flat gravel and picking plant placement with their growth in the 29g taken into account

(want to say the roots were so thick in flourite with no root tabs js)

cherry shrimp and their babies
amano shrimp no babys yet
ghost shrimp and their babies

endlers live bearers and their babies
neon tetras
rummynose tetras (my favs)
3 oto catfish
4 zebra snails
