Update on tank

1) Started pumping 1 bubble/ 2 seconds for a little extra growth
2) Made my own light hanger out of an old metal frame bookshelf, hack saw, spray paint, 8$ of hardware from Lowes, and some elbow grease. Looks pretty clean to me :D
3) Turned on both t5 24w bulbs in the single fixture and turned off the other 15w t8 fixture since the tank has co2 being injected.

Let me know what y'all think!

Your tank is gorgeous. I love shrimp and am in the process of setting up a shrimp only tank for RCS, so watching the progress on yours has been fun!

It looks great! I'm really impressed by your DIY skills. I'm terrible with stuff like that.

And I totally agree! Shrimp are addicting! I've only had my tank for a couple of months yet I want more more more!!

Just get a little practice and let the creativity flow :D

You should definitely get more though, i'm looking to setup a 7.5 gallon rimless tank for soft water shrimp like CRS, CBS, OEBT, etc.

As this is my third tank, I'm self-imposing that as my limit. ;o)

A little creativity and some good guidance ;)

I would love to get my hands on some CRS, but I'm completely out of tank room right now! Gotta move to a bigger house! One day I'd like a room (or at least a rack of tanks) dedicated to shrimps. There are just so many beautiful shrimps!
