I made a silly mistake. Today, i bought 10 cherry shrimps and i killed them all when i use a fish medicine(copper) bottle cap to scoop up some fish tank water and immediately all my shrimps went upside down !

i cannot forgive myself for making such silly mistake !!!!

I really like how you've sloped the substrate. I think that will add some nice dynamics to the tank as it evolves. Keep us updated.

You mentioned christmas moss and java moss are they intertwined in the ball?
1 of those balls looks a lot like Riccia to me. Are they mounted on the glass with suction cups or something.
You definately need rocks to give some terrain on the floor of the tank.
This has Iwagumi potential for sure. Can you please share some details on you co2 set up?
All together a good start with lots of potential.

Matt,

yes. they are intertwined in a bio ball. I believe what you said is correct. Riccia not christmas moss (what the seller believed).

The bio ball floats and i tie it onto a small weight with a fishing line at the end of it and bury the small weight into the substrate.

My co2 are pressurized and fed into the tank via an airstone. I released about 2 bubbles per second of Co2 and i think thats more than sufficient since riccia is bubbling well.

Right now only 2 'blue eye' (unsure the name yet) tetras and 10 deceased cherry shrimps(what an expensive fert!!!).

I also got more java moss tied onto a new drift wood that's shaped like a bridge. Right now its undergoing confinement. Will add it in when i 'think' its free from pests.

Thanks for more specs info. Stylish looking little tank too. The bridge looks pretty cool. About the balls thou, are they going to remaining floating like that? Are you going for a green sun and moon look?

basically my ideas are now all over the place. I might remove the riccia balls and left the moss floating
