I have been doing marine planted tanks since 2003 so I have had lots of different species of macro and 5 species of seagrass over the years. I love the macros and they make a beautiful setting to show off the sexy shrimp. Even though they are small they are my favorite species of SW shrimp because they are so outgoing and don't hide all the time.

Anyway this tank has been up since 2008 and has gone through a lot of changes. It used to have Blue-strip pipefish at one time.

Thanks for your comments.

That's a salt water tank? I'm confused. I've never seen anything like it before, and more specifically plants like those in a salt water tank.
Nothing to be confused about. It is SW with macro algae. Because I have a background in FW planted tanks which I have been doing since the 1960's I tried to make this tank look like a FW planted tank with shrimp.
