Nice looking tank and stand Alex. Did you purchase the stand or build it?

Also, what are the details on that light fixture?

Thanks Drinda and Chris. My father in law built it, and my wife help with the paint.
The light fixture is a grow light 8 bulbs t5ho, it came with 6,500 K bulbs, but I may add a couple of 10,000 and 12,000k. Paid $120 for the fixture with the bulbs (eBay hydroponic ).

Hi Alex,

How is your shrimp tank doing that was setup at the September meeting? That was the last meeting I was able to attend before moving, and it was a great meeting.

The tank is doing good! Plant grow is slow, but shrimps are happy and breeding. Just got a string algae problem solved! Thanks Pam for the snails, they are very active! They will go for the algae!, Michael, they haven't eat my plants yet, but lets see now with barely any algae left.

That is a great looking tank, and shrimp.

What kind of shrimp is the pink one in the second and third pic?

Thanks guys!

The pink shrimps are golden bees, not sure if the pink color is a mutation or a cross with crystal red.
