Hi ladies and gents,

Having used this forum for inspiration several times, I thought it would be nice to introduce myself. I have always enjoyed seeing people set up their aquarium and I thought. I would return the favour. I live in Madrid and I'm Durch so excuse my English.

I have had a 40 liter aquarium in the past and a fluval edge, however no pics :icon_cry:

Without further ado, I introduce to you, my fluval chi

Tank:
Fluval chi 25 liter,
Has (poor) incorporated LED lighting
A carbon and sponge filter
Eheim 25W heater
Aqua Grow plant and shrimp soil (3 liter)
Water :icon_cool

Plants:
Anubis petite (on the rock)
Micranthemum, monte carlo (foreground)
Marsilea, crenata (background)

Also some rock I don't know the name of. They seem to have some channels in them and the hollow tubes would be nice for the shrimp.

I'm having no animals in the tank as yet, however after in a week or so I will most likely introduce around 8 Crystal Red Shrimp. I would like something swimming in there, however I realise it is a bit of a small tank.

I'm not planning on using CO2 because that seems a bit complicated and. I prefer to wait and see how the plants do in the current setup.

Before the last picture I propperd up the bigger rock a bit to put the focus point of the scape somewhat more in the middle (height wise). I plan on moving the smaller rock somewhat for estetic reasons.

Please feel free to critise!

Yes I need some more green for sure. Not sure maybe a tall plant with long but very thin leaves at the back and the left?

I read online that it's best to keep small-leaved plants to make the tank look bigger.

Any recommendations?

Thanks for all the positivity guys. I reckon this will end up as a journal in the end. I might ask the moderators to love this thread over to journals.

What would you gents think about me putting in some frogbite to hove some stuff going on at the top. The LEDs are submerged so they will have to take the light from the environment, but it is close to a window so that shouldn't be a problem
