Looks like an awesome tank!

Added 2 otos and a manzanita branch with some baby java ferns tied to it. The moss wall is filling out nicely. Sorry for the cloudy water, I just got done sloping the substrate.

Another update**** I decided to divide the tank in half and keep super tigers on one side and CRS/CBS on the other side. Write now Im waiting for the tank divider to come in the mail. Also added 8 super tiger shrimp a couple of days ago.

Ok the divider thing didn't work out so well...Tigers ended up on CRS side and some CRS are on the tiger's side. So now I set up an 8g evolve for the Super tigers, and this tank will become strictly a CRS/CBS tank. The tigers are still in this tank, but Im not worried about them breeding with the CRS....I think the pH is a little too acidic for them at 6.4. But if it happens it happens. The 8g is almost done cycling probably only one more week before the tigers go to there new home.

Here is an updated picture:

Nice shrimp and tank
I finally have some shrimp that have berried up. 2 CRS and 1 CBS(should be dropping some shrimplets any day now) Will gets some pictures when I get back the house after this weekend.
Yay lots of juvies! Nice tanks you have. What material did you use for the moss wall?
