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.

      +1 for the sponge.

      Definitely go the sponge.

      I'm no expert, but 1 does seem a fair bit "chunkier" then the rest. Got a bit of a new problem though. I saw 1 of the shrimp cleaning away near the filter intake grill last night. He did look like he might have just been small enough to slip through. I was thinking of buying some filter sponge to jam behind the grill to stop them getting in.

      That’s a cool idea! I would be interested in testing that out as well at some point. Let us know if you try it!

      We don't get the heat you do their but I am planning to get a cooler, a fan when we get to spring if the shrimps do well. I don't know whether that type of cooler is available where you are and it may not be powerful enough anyway. I will just put it on the tank when needed, but thats unlikely to be often here, and so  easy to set up. Obviously this isn't any good where you are based but I wanted to show an alternative to the chiller in case that suits? https://www.pro-shrimp.co.uk/aquarium-coolers/3100-jbl-cooler-200-aquarium-cooler-4014162604293.html?search_query=cooler&results=8  Believe me when I say you don't want to go through the heartache of cooked shrimps, I am still gutted 6 months later and the new lot will never be the same???? CO2 and shrimps is very risky and so I wouldn't use it, especially if it isn't needed and everything is ok? Simon
