CG's 10g turned 5.5g Shrimp Tank !

Edit: new 5.5 gallon tank pics on page 3

So, here's my newly rescaped 10 gallon tank!

Specs:
Light: 1x10 watt and 1x13 watt bulb. Gonna try to find another 10 watt bulb.
Substrate: Flourite black sand
Filtration: Aquaclear 30 and Elite mini filter
Ferts: nothing
Fauna: guppies that have been in few months now. I will replace them with Red Cherry Shrimp in hopefully a week. They are just keeping the tank cycled for now.
Flora: Crypts Wendtii (i think), Water Wisteria, Taiwan moss.

Hardscape is one piece of driftwood i have and a nano package from Jake.

Planted


I just planted it today so i have to even out the substrate a bit and wait for the cloudiness to go away.

Any feedback and suggestions are appreciated

Tank has cleared up a bit.


I have a question, how can i add a piece of driftwood to the tank without pulling the whole wood structure out of the tank? I still have a lot of taiwan moss and driftwood left.

Haha, i'll get them in two weeks during my spring break. I was going to get it this week but i'm gone for three days this weekend and next weekend i'm going to NC.

Didn't want the shrimpies to be home by themselves
