Jenn's 5G Shrimp Tank
As all planted tanks, they evolve and even my tiny little 5G has evolved. It began its life on the shelf of a wallyworld, a lowly 5G kit on the bottom shelf:
(Sorry its a cellphone pic)
And then it got life:
Just some narrow leaf java fern, dwarf water lettuce, anarchis, xmas moss tied to a grid on the back wall to hopefully one day form a "moss wall".

And here it is about 2 weeks after setup :)
Ive added 2 Anubias nana, 4 petite anubias and better positioned plus added a few more stones. Ive also got an Apon bulb sprouting for another tank in there. The narrow leaf has filled in a bit more, and the moss wall which I thought I was gonna have to write off is starting to work...and naturally the anarchis has grown
The dwarf water lettuce has also almost doubled...its getting some nice roots now to. You can see a bit of aluminum foil hanging down to the right in that pic as well...these incandescent hoods have really crappy reflectors but some plain old heavy duty reynolds wrap can do alot for a 15watt screw in CF bulb. lol3x75 gallons|2x55 gallons|2x50 gallons|3x40 gallons|1x29 gallon|1x10 gallon

looks greatWhen I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me
