DBP 3 Gallon Long

I'm pretty new to the hobby so I thought I would start a journal for my new DBP 3 gallon long. After seeing these posted in the nano forums I couldn't resist and picked one up for myself. I'll soon be housing yellow shrimp in here (should be arriving early next week!).

Tank specs
Tank: DBP 3 gallon
Filter: AC 20
Lighting: Finnex clip-on
Substrate: Eco-complete
DIY co2

Here are some progress pics from the day I set it up until last night. Feedback and advice is greatly appreciated!

I really enjoy the plants in the foreground and the overall scape of things!

I wanna redo the scape in mine but have opted to not cause of my baby shrimp. I've had my hands wet to do it nearly 3 times but better judgement kept me from it.

The wood looks perfect sized too and I know they are hard tanks to shop for size wise

Thanks guys! This little tank has been a lot of fun to set up. Looks like my shrimp will arrive tomorrow. Can't wait to get them into their new home.

Vermino, I'm using Malaysian driftwood. My LFS has a pretty nice selection with really interesting shapes.

My shrimp arrived yesterday and seem to be taking to the tank nicely! Photos are a little blurry. Guess I had a bit too much coffee before taking the shots.

They are indeed. There are 10 or 11 in there now and I think I'll stick with just the shrimp for now.
