Very nice scape for such a small aquarium, and very healthy looking plants.

I was going to comment on the amount of cherries I saw thinking that you said you had three cherry shrimp- I misread there for three... :D

What substrate are you using and what type of bulbs?

Nice tank
Are you using CO2 to keep the red color?

Very nice! I might remove the piece of wood at the far right as it takes away from the scape but otherwise the layout is impressive.

If you are doing this without fertz and no CO2, You are able to obtain the health and color in plants many of us could only hope for. Is your water just ordinary tap water?
Would love to see this tank in a few months to see how it is doing.

Su tanque es bello! (Your tank is beautiful) El color de la Rotala, sin CO2 y sin fertilizantes es increible. (The color of that Rotala without CO2 or ferts is incredible).

The plants were selected of others aquariums where they are very healthy.

The plants are happys with the ordinary tap water, kh 1 ph<=6, the problem is the temperature, no heated, in the moment the temperature around 18ºC, your grow is very slow :mmph:

The color of rotala Bert ..... i don´t understand :confused:..... how i say it :confused:.... rotala is trimming red in other aquarium, in this aquarium preserve the color

Understand me?

Regards and perdon for my english, I attempt increase in quality.

A genuine little work of art you've got there. Would be dangerous to put something like this on you desk, wouldn't be able to take my eyes off it. Congratulations

I has grown! Are you planning on triming so we can see the wood? I like the look of the wood it really gives it contrast.
