"Reef" - 1 foot cube for Sulawesi shrimps

Nothing special, just a shrimp tank. I am planning to get some Sulawesi shrimps, dennerli or orchid, but when it warms a bit. The tank will be well cycled until then. CO2 is there only to boost plant growth at the beginning, later i will remove it and also will remove one light tube - currently there are 2 light tubes 2x39W that lighting whole shelf (130cm long). So that will be low tech/light tank. Rocks are red and black lava rocks, and substrate is inert quartz gravel.

Plant list:

Eleocharis acicularis
Eleocharis montevidensis
Cryptocoryne parva 'Mini'
Fissidens fox (attached to the rocks by Yogurt method)
Microsorum sp. 'Thai'
Microsorum sp. 'Dwarf narrow leaf'



Current situation (5 weeks old):



Cryptocoryne parva 'Mini' growing great even in inert gravel!





Fissidens fox popping out:
