    Adam’s Shrimp & Fissidens Tank

    ba4a693b9cf4ef0456b93a1a6a716b1e.jpg

    Aquarium: Aqua One/ Aquanano 25
    Co2: Sodastream Adapted
    Temperature: 23c
    PH 7.6
    GH 6
    KH 4
    Fauna: Neocaridina davidi var. red
    Flora: Fissidens fontanus, Cryptocoryne sp., Taxiphyllum barbieri, Vesicularia montagnei

    Aquired aquarium in October 2014 and proceeded to acclimatise and cultivate Fissidens fontanus in various rock orientated hardscapes; subsequent changes in layout, plant selection, and substrate have only recently realised the minimalist planted shrimp tank I originally had in mind.

    In addition to cultivating Fissidens, I would like to introduce more miniature plants like Hemianthus, but hesitate to complicate the current aquascape and its generally isolated focal points.

    Things are growing steady, water is well oxygenated and substrate clean. I have had two small batches of shrimplets in this tank so far, but further breeding seems to have slowed.

    If anyone was wondering, the other object pictured is an automated sculpture with little hand-cast resin squid.

    Fissidens growth appears shrub-like, spreading, and glows a lime green.

    I've been documenting tank maintenance, observations, and other details in a small notebook, I may scan and include them here at some point.
