    Its a beautiful tank. Can u add more info.like tank size, age, substrate, water parameters (PH,GH,KH,TDS,etc), RO/tap water, percentage of water changed, water change is weekly/fortnightly/monthly, types of mosses used,etc.
    I'm curious as to why u have 3 types of filters (Eheim 2215, HOB filter, sponge filter)?

    Hi all !~ It's been awhile since i last updated on my shirmp tank . Many things happen during this 2 months time frame, instead of using the 1.5ft i have changed to a 2ft tank ~ without any more further delay i will post some pictures


    (Just sticked oyama and place the 2ft in to place)


    (Added a layer of old sea mud powder,Humic Acid, Montmorillonite powder,Bacteria)



    (Products and soil that i used)



    (Plants that are in my tank)


    (My first berried shrimp that got berried in my friends tank, as i placed it in my friends tank for temporary holding)

    After 2 weeks, went back to collect the shrimps and after a long 27 days wait i finally see my first baby shrimplet~

    Hi Rony,

    Sorry for the late reply, I have did some changes to my tank already as shown above in my latest post~ Changed my setup from 1.5ft to 2 ft ~ my water para as follows

    Ammonia: 0
    No2 : 0
    NO3 : 5
    PH : 5.9
    Gh : 3
    KH : 1
    TDS: 114

    My water change is done weekly on every Thursday about 10 - 15 % with age water dose with Mosura Shizhen powder. I have already remove the HOB currently only have sponge and canister. To answer your question on (Why do i have so many filters) the reason is simple, isn't it better to over filtrate than not enough filtration? we want the best for our live stock don't we ? hehe ! the purpose for the sponge for my shrimp/shrimplets to graze on the bio flim that grows on it ~
