Bringing you the aesthetics of Texas with the affinity for Sulawesi! This low-tech tank will be dedicated to a variety of poso snails and Sulawesi shrimp.

Specs:
-20 gallon long
-Finnex px-360 (bio) and Aqueon 10 HOB (mechanical)
- Lighting: 2 23 watt CFL
- Substrate: Black Diamond Sand
- CO2: Excel
-Ferts: Osmocote+ tabs
- Decor: Texas Holey Rock (30lbs) and Cholla branch (coming soon)
- Extras: HOB Refugium/Sump (currently holding my RCS colony)

11/30/2014

Startup: Positioned the rocks and added sand

Added some low tech plants. All it's missing is the cholla branch now.

12/1/14

All these baby RCS escaped my refugium and found their way into the main tank. I don't want RCS outcompeting cardinals, which is why I put them all into the fuge.

My first Sulawesi inhabitant! A yellow poso snail. Better pics after the break I promise.

Looking forward to seeing how this progresses, subscribed
Thanks! Excited to work on it.
Always happy to see more people keeping sulawesi shrimp. What kind are you planning on keeping?
I would like to start off with cardinals, then get some harlequins and eventually red goldflakes :)

Glad to hear, Cardinals are my favorite shrimp, I think they look amazing. They are not too hard to take care of either. Just let the tank mature for a month or so though as they graze the biofilm in the tank a lot and I havnt really gotten them to take prepared food.
