    Hi, I am new here but wanted to get some feedback on my first tank. It's a 20l cube that's been running for about 6 weeks or so now. I have three Ramshorn snails and a few cherry shrimp, although the shrimp are keeping a low profile at the moment. Have I let it get too overgrown?

    Please excuse the phone photo.

    Looks good to me, i guess you will start to see more shrimp when their numbers increase.

    Thanks guys. The shrimp have only been in a couple of weeks so it's too early to expect babies yet I guess. I was worried that some had died as I had only seen one or two but I saw five grazing on algae earlier so I guess all the plants must be hiding them.

    Thanks for the Photoshop work too, that looks much better.

    One suggestion for you... it looks like your Bacopa is getting a bit smothered by the.. is it cabomba?. Maybe try having one of each species on each side of the wood to give them more equal chance to grow...?

    Thanks, I will give that a try. It would tidy things up a bit.
