It's set up! My CPD's have been in quarantine for 2 weeks and it's time for their new home!
The Aquaclear 20 Is doing wonders, it cleared up my tank within an hour =o.
The Finnex Clamplight came today and its 3-4x brighter than the stock light.
Marineland Contour 5 gallon (With back filter and wall removed)
Aquaclear 20 (with Fluval Biomax Rings from my 20 g)
Eheim Jager 50w (could not for the life of me find a 25w so this will do) Set to 24c and slowly inching its way down from 25.5c)
Finnex Planted+ Cliplight
Azoo Bubbler (for back left corner, has not arrived)
Cichlid Stone Small (This is my Amano Shrimps home)
Fluval Plant Stratum
Mopani Driftwood (Would not sink, I drilled holes into it and a piece of plexi and zip tied it down.)
10 Celestial Pearl Danio aka Galaxy Rasbora
4 Pygmy Corydoras
2 Adult Amano Shrimp
Eleocharis Acicularis (Dwarf Hairgrass)
Sagittaria Subulata (Dwarf Sagitarria)
Rotala (sp. Wallichii)
Rotala (sp. Nanjenshan)
Willow Moss (that im currently tying to small rocks)
Full tank shot, hope this fills in soon, otherwise I may have to add in a sword or some java fern.
I wish I had the patience to spread these out a bit, but I don't.
Dwarf Sag will do a great job of covering the heater once it grows up.
The Celestial Pearl Danios love to swim around the matterhorn lol (Wish I had a better Camera to catch these guys still)
Any tips on keeping CPDS? I want to add some more of them as my lfs has plenty, they are about 0.5 inches and only cost $2 each. Also some other species of shrimp to compliment the tank or some plant ideas would be appreciated.
Note: I do have 70+ Ultra Red Cherry Shrimp. I could transfer a few over but I wanted to try a new colour out. Ideally some Crystals but that would mean goodbye to the Amano. =[
