more plants and pictures to come soon. hopefully i'll have more than ghost shrimp and a cherry barb in there shortly.
if anyone has spare shrimp - anything other than ghosts, or is willing to sell them, please let me know - i have no good sources of fun shrimp here. i'd like to support individual aquarists before ordering from the big guys.

    I always used dirt capped with seachem flourish on too and had great success! Just make sure to use a chop stick, and poke down into it to release any ammonia. I didn't my first time and it eventually made a bubble and poped and killed everything haha.
