5.5g Planted...Shrimp & CPD's

Had an extra 5.5g laying around after I thought it sprung a leak while set up as my reef tank...ran out bought a new 5.5g and switched it over...leak tested this one and found that the leak was in the flex tubing running from the tank to the refugium...so you know how the story goes...as an addict to this hobby having an empty tank laying there gave me the dope fiend itch and I grabbed rock, substrate, plants, water, filter media, shrimp, etc. Been setup 2 weeks...water parameters looked great so I added 6 tiny CPD's and 1 male & 1 female RCS...

5.5g
27watt Hampton Bay Desk Lamp
Paintball CO2 1 BPS
No heater...not needed...
Dosing EI
6 CPD'S
2 Rcs
2 Otto's
Subwassertang
Sunset Hygro
Fissidens Fontanus
Some type of Rotala can't remember as the background plant...
Anubias Nana
Don't remember what else...bored at work and killing time til 10pm...

This looks nice, are you thinking about adding a foreground? I think a low growing plant like HC would look nice in that open area.

Nice tank!
I think that Glosso would also make a nice carpet/foreground in there.

I would order my HC online if I were you. Better quality and price than most stores. You could check Aquabid.

Any updates on the tank, MeanGreen? Did you find any HC?

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.
