can you spot the tank?
I may change the shrimp to either red rili, crs ss or blue pearl as the yellow shrimp blends in with the yellow sand...i wish my lfs had some green sand to look like grass.

Dwayne Wade...i wish they made a Alonzo Mourning figure. I don't want to use a unopened Starting Lineup figure. (I'm a Late 90's Heat fan)

size is 5"x5"x5" 1L of water. I did order a light on [Ebay Link Removed] I didnt cycle the tank. I just brought everything to work and set it up, added water & shrimp. The shrimp seem to be doing fine but if they die i will add a betta fish if they live i will replace them with 2 crs ss.

Please don't add a betta! That's much too small for it (even though it looks awesome!!) I would stick to shrimp or nothing, as I'd even be so bold as to say this size is cruel for a fish the size of a betta.

Digging the moss tree, though- the wood is prefect.

Hmm ok let me know if the shrimp survive. I also set up a little vase tank for some baby shrimp. I've been trying to get it to cycle since Monday. Slow start. High ammonia still, the nitrite went back down, so that's good. Can you PM me the ebay light link? Thanks

+1 It would be nearly impossible to keep stable parameters with a such a high bioload.
