Let's see the single species tanks!

Since joining this forum I have noticed that so many people are keeping community tanks. I personally love tanks that are set up specifically for one or two species. Currently, I have a tank set up for endler's livebearers and cherry red shrimp. I find it easier to create the right habitat and feed the right foods when I'm not dealing with many different species from all over the world in the same tank.

So here is the task:
Post pictures and descriptions of your single species tanks! Show that beauty is not necessarily tied to variety.

Ok I'll bite!

As of right now it's just a Red Cherry Shrimp 5.5g. Soon it will have some Celestial Pearl Danios.

Haha yes it is in reference to predatory fish I am a huge Polypterus fan. But my tanks now-a-days are all community tanks!

Also, thank you for the compliment! Your tank looks great too! I love that Black Bar Endler in that first pic.

Thanks...that was the first day for the fish in that tank. The shrimp had ruled the roust for 6 weeks and weren't sure what this thing interrupting their snack was. I'm breaking up the algae pellets now so the shrimp actually get some!
