    Very beautiful aquarium Only a cap from a moss in the centre. Place it in a point of gold section
    In the tank live only crystal shrimps?

    thanks for sharing... your planted tank looks great... a pity to have to tear it down to the bare essentials for the shrimps... i tink you could have kept the downoi with the shrimp though...
    is that coral pelia in the center and taiwan moss by the side?
    are those white stones mineral rocks?

    not sure if it's any help though... but i do keep some rooted plants (HC n Blyxa n Japanese Dwarf Hair Grass... tink it's eleocharis parvula [japan]) in the shrimp tank to deal with the waste in the substrate since i dont use a UGF...

    Initially, I kept some cherry, green and blue shrimps as a startup of my planted tank into shrimp keeping. Then I installed 2 fans to lower the temperature and kept C-grade CRS.

    As for now, there are cherry, green, malayan shrimps and those higher grade CRS in the tank.

    The downoi is one of my favourite plant but I do have to remove as I do not have CO2 injection and downoi needs Iron to flourish. Yes, the center of the DW on the middle portion is coral pelia, top is fissiden, by the side should be christmas moss. The christmas moss growth is nice as it grew upwards and not creeping on the substrate. Those white stones were bought as the LFS told me is old mud sea rock. But I search the internet, the colour shouldn't be in white colour should be grey. Anyway, I just left it in my tank to surround the moss ball.
