Hi all, This is my latest project. Please excuse the poor photo quality taken with my phone. Crystal Red Shrimp non-CO2 aquascape by George Farmer, on Flickr It's going to be dedicated to crystal red shrimp (CRS) and I hope to get them breeding. The tank is in my office at work. The tank and cabinet aren't in the best condition after years of constant scaping but still perfectly useable. Here is the spec so far - Tank - German optiwhite 60x30x36cm and cabinet from Aqua Essentials circa 2007 Lighting - Fluval AquaLife LED (25w, 312 low power LEDs (white, yellow, red, blue)) Filter - Fluval G6 with sponge fitted to inlet to prevent sucking in shrimp Substrate - Environment Aquarium Soil from Hobby Shrimp Hardscape - Manzanita wood, Yamaya stone (not in photo) The temperature is a steady 20C with no heater. I have the spray bar pointing to agitate the surface to improve oxygen levels. No CO2 injection. I have a few cuttings from friends to plant; Anubias nana, C. wendtii green, Hydrocotyle tipartia and a couple of experimental plants. Lots of moss covering the wood and stones too, hopefully. I will be using RO water remineralised with Salty Shrimp GH+ booster to give conductivity of about 200 microsiemens. This gives me KH 0 and about GH 6. The soil should buffer the pH at about 6. I should be adding the plants and moss stones over the next couple of days, and shrimp next week hopefully.
