Hi Darbininkas3

Very nice hardscapes, tank and shrimps...
How come the soil is black in the first and third pictures and brown in the other pictures? Is it because of the lighting?

Hello louuu

Thanks for coments
Substrate in first photos is black becaus it is only sprayed with water and not filed up fully :) and it is dark brown like ADA amazonia II.

hI, darbininkas.. Your tiger shrimp tank look simple and deep and the driftwood was unique. Do you cycle your new tank??

Yes I'm sure, because this net is without any metal in it, and i dezinfecated it before puting in tank.
This aquarium is no longer looking like he looked then I started it. Updates in another post :)
