An awesome looking moss tank

this tank belongs to friends of mine at an lfs here, "pacific aquarium & pet supply" to be exact

i sometimes go in just to look at the tank, its mostly java moss, but they have a few other plants in there as well

the fauna, rasboras,cherry barbs,long finned rainbows,neons, and 4 generations of amano shrimp

the photos where taken by me
substrate is flourite
personally...i think it would look better with a backround, but since the fromt of the tank is facing towards the back of the store, it would be missed if you walk in and see junst the BG

Wow, I really like that! I love Moss but I've had bad Cladophora thread algae problems with it, so I look at that tank and go 'wow, no algae!'

and 4 generations of amano shrimp
How'd they breed the amano's? Do they raise the the offspring in a separate brackish water tank? Cool tank..........
