Nano RCS Tank

Postby Sourav Bhowmick » Fri Jul 24, 2015 8:45 pm

Hi I'm Sourav. This is my first post. I have recently setup a cherry shrimp tank. Yes I am a beginner. All criticisms and advices are welcome! :)
It is a 1 cubic foot nano tank. planted for 3 weeks, added shrimp less than a week ago.
The drift wood still need mosses to to make a canopy to have a tree like appearance.
Plants used Fauna- RCS (probably sakura), Ramshorn snail
Dwarf hairgrass
Pogostemon helferi
anubias
hydrocotyle
Rotala rotundifolia
Lily

Here is pic of my shrimps

Having DIY CO2
Diffusing through hang on back filter having a flow rate 250 L/hr

Light 23 watt 6500k CFL
Still have no cooling fan.
Substrate ADA amazonia



Can anyone grade my shrimps? And give me some suggestions about this scaping or anything else? :-\
And wat's the best place to buy other shrimps like cardinia (tiger, bee etc) in Kolkata?

moved and locked the duplicate one.hopefully it will get deleted.

and tank looks good.very conventionally done.make sure you have a cooling fan on.
myself not handy with scaping.so wont comment regrading that.

dont feed those guys now.start feeding only after they increase a bit in numbers.for now the biofilm is enough.

and concentrate a bit on plant growth.they do love lush vegetation.


and if you are a beginner i would advise you not to go for cardinia like bees.they do need a chiller to make them stay for 12 months a year in kolkata.
