Vinh's 60l Shrimp Journal - Lots of Pictures!

This is a completely new setup than what I've had before, so here goes nothing.

Aquarium Specifications:

Tank - 60l Tetra Aquaart
Lighting - 15W T8, 11W Arcpod and 11W Desk Lamp (8-9 hours/day)
Substrate - 6kg Fluval Stratum
Filter - Eheim 2213
Heater - Hydor ETH 200W
CO2 - TMC AquaGro (for the moment)
Fertilisers - 1.5ml x EasyCarbo daily, Trace Elements, K2SO4, KNO3 andK H2PO4 x 3 days week

Driftwood
Taiwan Moss
Pogostemon Helferi
Hemianthus Callitrichoides

So here's how it looks:

Week 1 - 14/10/2011


I need to cover the back of the tank

Week 2 - 21/10/2011

As of yesterday i decided to tie some Taiwan moss to the top of the driftwood to create a bonsai tree effect, plus it will give the shrimps something to nibble on.

Only a week has passed, and i can see some growth already. The HC has slowly started to creep and the Pogostemon Helferi seems to be much bigger as well. I'm very happy with the progress.

Nice! What kind of tank is that?
