light: 2 ramps. 1 ramp = 2x10W T8 4500K
Co2: pressurized. 1 bubble per 8 seconds.
substrate: ADA Amazonia and shrimp soil.
ferts: JBL Florapol(under ADA) and JBL Ferropol(2ml after water change)

Flora: Utricularia graminifolia, Eleocharis parvulus
Fauna: Poropanchax normani, Otocinclus affinis, Tiger shrimps, Clithon sp.

NOW- After 1 month

Amazing work!

You succeeded in making the tank look much larger. This really was my first impression.

The plants look nice and healthy. Because you used only two plant species the general feeling is very natural.

Congratulations!

Ask me if I love this plant!!! I've been trying to get it to grow in my 10g shrimp tank. I think it may be starting to take off. I got it going well once and ended up with clado from the LFS - ruined it all. This last time I planted I didn't get a good stock to begin from, but I think it's beginning to grow! Here's to crossing your fingers! :D
