Cool GLA 60L Crystal Red Shrimp Tank

I'm back in the nano freshwater world - at least for summer. Ive been wanting to keep shrimp again but my water is terrible for invertz. But since its summer time in Florida that means theres free water falling from the sky pH 6.2.

Hardware-
20W cfl
zoo med 501
some eco/black sand

Software-
anubias nana
needle leaf java fern
taiwan moss
hygro angustifolia

here it is. a bit cloudy, but i just planted it.

That's a great start. What kind of shrimp are you planning on putting in there?

checkout this site. I always wanted to have an exotic shrimp tank but these are jaw dropping expensive

ditto. irrespective of how attractive they look in there, I'll probably never attempt getting any from them.
