Adam’s Shrimp & Fissidens Tank

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.
