5 gal Rock garden Timeline

this tank was intended for me but my little brother (13) (user name is budd) got interested in the planted aquaria and shrimps so i helped him make this tank. This tank was from his and my imagination with over a week in planning and scaping.

this tank have been setup for almost a week now, it originally went trough a fishless cycle doing 75% w/c every day for a week. On the 4thday we sstarted to introduce already establish tank water.

plants:
HC
HG
and hornworth....just for now to eat up the excess nutrients

Substract:
Turface MVP

lighting:
i forget :p
it think it's either 14w or 18w

fuana:
5 amano shrimps
5 snowball/cherry hybrids





the amanos are already at work at pulling at alot of the plants as you can see.

OMG, that rock layout is so awesome. I have that same type of rock in my 10g. Just unsure how to use it! You did great. What are your plans on plants?

thanks james

that forground is already planted with HC and between the rocks there's HG.
The HC is planted really deep so you can't see it much but despite that the amano is still uprooting them along with the HG

any suggestions or ideas are great, don't hold back but keep it mind that this tank is a budget tank.

Very nice rocks, maybe some eleocharis would fit in the scape, just a thought.

Good luck.
