7G Tank

Tank is about a month old now. Over the last week I've added neon's and cherry shrimp.

The light im not to sure on, I bought it from the LFS and wasnt sure if it was going to be big enough. It is only small but seems to be doing the job fine. Its on a flexible neck. (photos below)

The filter is an aqua world IF30 (i think) internal, with a spray bar that is submerged to minimise surface movement.

The substrate is Aqua soil and im running DIY Co2.

Since this is my first planted tank, im still learning. So does anyone know if this is a good or a bad snail to have in the tank? I just noticed it.

Snails arent bad just bad in excess and can be kept under control if you pull some out every now and then and if you dont feed in excess

Weekend rescape

Still waiting on the water to clear up a tad. It was a complete pull down to a bare tank.



And some new tank mates

That slope you created on the right is really cool. It reminds me of a natural setting. I just find these photos strikingly nice. Even the second one. It looks like you were in the Amazon and casually put your camera underwater and snapped a shot.
