That’s looks great! I tend to be in the less is more side of things, like Amano tanks...

Nice tank!

I'm like Cesar as well when it comes to shrimp tanks. You have to strike a balance of a natural look, without too many plants and driftwood that will let the shrimps hide all the time.

i like to be able to see the shrimp instead of searching for them.

Since you have no shrimp yet, then straight into the tank up to the level you want is fine.

      Yah idk if it would do heaps of added extra for a tank ... I would add more air via a pump before I spent $15 on the device

      Don't know about effectiveness on breeding, but additional oxygen in the water can't go wrong. It's probably better for overcrowded tanks.

      Any Update on the effectiveness of this on shrimp and breeding?

      Id put in maybe a liter or 2 of water (1cm of water in the tank) and put in a couple handfuls of substrate at the base just to help, the other substrate to them cover it which will have the main contact with your water allowing for the buffering effects (and the colour difference if there is one wont be noticed).

      I currently have a small pipe heater in the current tank that i can use for the new one, that technically makes my new project cheaper because i now don't need 2. can i get dimensions of this thank fully assembled including the top cover just so i can determine if i need to adapt my shelving. i don't mind poking out a corner of the tank from the shelf so i can do water changes and i can lift the tank onto another surface for heavy maintenance if necessary. Im really just interested if there is space for feeding without moving the tank.
