    For plants I am thinking:

    2 potted crypts per tank (one on each side of the piece of driftwood in the middle
    A clump of moss on driftwood
    Floating bunch of hornwort or other floating plant

    Black construction paper works, but I've never had it last long. Always manage to get it soaked during water changes. Another cheap item you can instead is a black garbage bag. If you use the thicker ply bags, you can apply it to the tank like you would window tint on a car.

    Just got lucky, splash of ammonia in each, checked it an hour later and one is at 2ppm and the other is between 1 and 2 ppm. Hooked up the sponge filters and have the tanks set at around 78*

    Hopefully going to get some plants this weekend and now I really need to figure out which type of shrimp I want to go with

    That looks good. Is there any way you can stand or prop the wood up to give some height?

    What plants are you going to introduce?

    I might look into it for the lower tank (proping the wood up)

    I have hornwort in one tank for now, will introduce moss and thinking either a pair of crypts or cardinal plants in each tank
