Decided to start a 30c tank with some fun adventuring places for shrimps to explore. My idea is just a little shrimp playground, with tiers, lots of plants, a few caves, some epiphyte-covered knee mountains, and a beach.
I have a cypress knee collection from working in swamps over the years...

I have been wanting to do a UG Iwagumi scape for several years. I finally took the plunge and started this 20 gallon long tank mid-March with $80 worth of UG from Buce plants.
Over four months I have got the UG to completely carpet just in time to move and need to tear this down.

I need help on planting UG (utricularia graminifolia) in my tank...
I have done it three times.
1. separate them into small pieces and roll it like a hair grass and plant them.
spray 2 - 3 times a day, put on the shelf (below level) so it doesn't get direct natural light.
I have been looking through journals on this forum for some time now. Just haven't created an account or anything. But I thought it was about time to share my aquariums. The first one I would like to show you guys is my ADA 60-P. Here are the specifics:
