    Here is my 5 gallon Fluval Chi. This is my first post and I have been browsing for about a month but I just registered.

    A little while back I posted just a couple of pictures of my Newman inspired shrimp bowl within another thread, but I've had access to a VERY nice camera, and I've also had a good bit of growth, including the genesis of many young shrimp, so I thought I'd throw up some photos and start my own...
