Aquascaped bow fronted tank

This was my second attempt at Aquascaping and possibly the best I have done.

I am now concentrating on Terrascaping.

Nice set-up. Do you have a list of plants in the tank? Just wondering if they are all low light level plants?

The plants are a mix of Anubia and crypts with a few bits and pieces in the back corner cover for the breeding shrimp.

It was a complete "Low Tech tank" Seachem liquid ferts and fert tabs.

Lighting T8 tubes 1 daylight & 1 plant light 10hrs per day, 30% twice weekly water changes.

I ran an Eheim Pro3 filter

The part that I was told could not be done was the UGF.

When it was pulled down 99.9% of the grates were clear not blocked like the so called experts told me.

      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.
