I'm back in the nano freshwater world - at least for summer. Ive been wanting to keep shrimp again but my water is terrible for invertz. But since its summer time in Florida that means theres free water falling from the sky :) pH 6.2.

Hardware-
20W cfl
zoo med 501
some eco/black sand

Software-
anubias nana
needle leaf java fern
taiwan moss
hygro angustifolia

here it is. a bit cloudy, but i just planted it.

That's a great start. What kind of shrimp are you planning on putting in there?
thanks! no idea :icon_roll i'll probably start out and see if i can keep neos alive and maybe think about getting some crs or something.

we'll be interested to hear when you start narrowing down stocking choices.

i'm surprised to see that planetinvertz.com is still in operation. i thought that they had gone under.

yeah those Sulawesi shrimp are really something when you see them in person too.

i have been collecting rainwater for a few years and using it in combination with dehumidifer water where i need softer water. rainwater is great, but it has recently proven to be inadequate, so i recently invested in an RO unit.

You should have gotten betta embellis they're worth the higher price tag for not killing everything in sight.
Nice tank though, one of those that will only improve with age.
