Fluval Spec V Shremp Tank

Set up my new spec today. Pulled sand, plants, wood, shrimp etc. out of my 65g. The shremp just get lost in there. I needed a space just to focus on them. https://www.amazon.com/photos/shared...j000HH7VCZYgie

Yep! My snails shells are looking very white so I am upping the calcium in their diet.

I am planning to add Christmas moss all over as soon as my order arrives.

I tested the water 24hours after set up. No ammonia! Iíll keep up the testing till Iím sure I have avoided a mini cycle.

Fluval Spec V Shremp Tank

Successful first week. Tested water daily and not trace of ammonia. Bought some more Christmas moss and attached to rocks. Hopefully in a few months the tank will be a mossy paradise.

No signs of stress or ammonia in tests. Everyone busy and eating.

That's really pretty. I have a Spec V I want to set up. It's nice to see aquascape examples.
