3 gallon Shrimp Tree Journal

Shrimp Tree 3 gallon

ok well since i tore down my 42 hex i decided to do a 3 nano tank. i am using the tank from a eclipse 3 kit.

Equipment
one single bulb 40 watt coral life fixture the bulb is half 10,000k and the other half is 6,700k
Pressurized Red Sea Co2
Obnious sponge filter will be replaced wit a red sea or palm filter will have to do for now.

Plant wise i have java moss tree right now and dwarf hairgrass which i am giving away to Tonysok. i am planning to have a carpet of HC.

Their is one amano in there now. 4 Red Cherry Shrimps. Planning on getting more shrimp and of course Red Crystal Shrimp =). Their is also one otto in there and two olive netrite snails.

Here is a pic of the tank. for now

I miss your hex, but this is going to be awesome. Especially with the HC.

Without Algae, death of mankind would be inevitable.

well actually i got a piece of mazanita that looked kind of like a tree shape than took the java moss out of the tank and shaped it into the wood so it would attach to it cuz java moss loves to attach itself to everything than shaped the moss into what i think a tree would look like

yeah i really can't wait i miss the hex too but this is my new project so im going to try hc im kind of nervous cause i heard how tiny the roots are and such im not really worried about lighting co2 etc cuz i have all that just getting it to stay down in the substrate. i am in need of a pair of actually aquascaping scissors and twizers i think once i get paid this week im going to try to get a new filter/ scissors/twizers.

Scissors: cuticle scissors from walmart or anywhere. They are perfect for this and are only about $3.00

Tweezers: went to my university and picked up a pair of forceps from the university book store for like $2- they are used for dissections in the biology department.

Just thought I would tell you some very economical options befor eyou spend more money than you have to

Looks like a great start! But isn't 40 watts over a 3 gallon tank a bit too much
