I bought the tank from a BCA member a year back. With school and everything, I couldn't set it up..until now.



When it was first set up! So...pristine.



After a month. There's quite a bit of algae.

Currently stocked with:
5? Tiger Shrimp
3? Amano Shrimp (I lose track haha)
1 lone Cherry Shrimp
2x Pea Puffers

Plants:
Fissedens moss
Christmas moss
Anubias nana
Persicaria kawagoeanum
Monte Carlo carpet
Cyperus helferi
(struggling) Mini Pelia
Some sort of Crypt
Alternanthera reineckii mini
Windelov Java Fern

Equipment:
ADA 45P; ~10G
Current USA Satellite LED+ light
Eheim 2215
Hydor 200W In-Line Heater
Some Manzanita Wood
Tropica Aquarium Soil Powder on top and some ADA Amazonia on the bottom
Pressurized CO2 (split between my other tank)

Out of all the inhabitants, I like the tiger shrimps the best.


This tank joins my long-established 20G long, to create a "fish corner"


I keep both tanks at ~4 dGH, ~4 dKH, and ~250 TDS

What I've learned:
- dwarf puffers are VERY picky indeed
- poppy pipe outflow does nothing about the biofilm on top of the water...icky
- canister filters are hard to plumb with a desk...I didn't think this through

Next tank: going salty :p

I had dwarf puffer before. It's almost like a pet dog in water. Always on the glass when I pass by also cute little eyes.. I fed it blood worm, babies from reject shrimps and baby rams hornbsnail..

As Dou said, any update? :)
