My First Iwagumi - "Mt. Sinai"

Hello everyone! My name is Van and I'm here in the Philippines. It's my first time to post a thread here at Tropical Fish Keeping and I would like to share my "Mt. Sinai" Iwagumi Tank and the different species of shrimps and other inverts that reside here.

(Should any of you find wrong names given to any specie, please do not hesitate to post a comment or pm me for corrections. I am just a newbie to this shrimp hobby and I want to learn more from you all, from both masters and my fellow learners. All your helpful comments and suggestions are very much welcome in this thread. Hope you'd enjoy. Thank you!)

First: Here is my tank

That's a great looking tank Van I love the variety of shrimp that you have in there. The reds are beautiful.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
