My ghost shrimp tank lol

Here is my ghost shrimp tank

There was 10 in there, I threw 4 in my saltwater tank as feed. Now I have about 5 in there, last one at the back in the HOB sump if you can see.

There is also a dwarf golden barb in there, really cute.

Can anyone suggest on how I should plan out the aquarium, I made the substrate looks like going uphill and a tree with moss on the left, a small plant growing in the middle. It looks like a desert to me lol.

Enjoy

I think it looks sweet! Maybe add a few cool looking rocks or something? Or some low ground covering plants?

Thanks for the sweet comment Yea I think is a good idea to have some grass like plants like in the front of the tank, maybe dwarf hair grass? anything that doesn't require CO2 injection

I've actually had terrible luck with dwarf hair grass. But I think it might be because it was at the bottom of my 29 gallon... It just kind of got smaller and smaller until it was no longer haha. But maybe it would work better only being 10 inches away from the top of the tank instead of 20!

Looks good i think all it needs is some simple growout time and a carpet. Any aquarium could use a carpet

I agree. leave it how it is, but add a nice carpet.

I like that there are only a few focal points. Adding a carpet won't take away from that, but will make the tank look fuller IMO.
