5.5G Blue Iwagumi

Bought a 5.5G from Petco last week. Picked up a 20 too since they?re having dollar per gallon sale but that?s for another day. Filter is an ac30 with a prefilter sponge so the shrimp don?t get trapped in there lol I used to pull like 10 shrimp a week from this filter when I did a water change. Light is a finnex planted + cliplight. For now I?m just using Java moss until I source out some dwarf hairgrass Belem. Hopefully I can my co2 regulator fixed or replaced I?m still waiting on GLA to get back at me. For now I?ll use excel. The shrimp were fulfilled by flipaquatics and doing great starting out with 10 we?ll see how they do.

Looks like you need one more rock, or the Iwagumi police will come after you. Looks good to me, though.
I'm really thinking I need to make a small shrimp tank like this. How well can you keep the Christmas moss down?
I'm going to watch with interest, as I'd really like to get the blue shrimp as well.

I can only grow plants when they're completely under water. Everything else is doomed.

Wheeeooooweeeooooweeeoooo This is the Iwagumi Police.

Please add one more stone to conform to universally acceptable Iwagumi standards. Odd number of stones is used to communicate the more random natural order of nature as opposed to man's more symmetrical tendencies.

Looks like you plan to use CO2. Is the Planted + light considered high light for a 5.5 Gal?
