Hi Crew
Picked up this little tank for the hall or living room...got a bit of a reduction in the price from Amazon £78.00!
Not sure what I'm going to do with it yet!
Probably start as a slow burner then add CO2!
Got stuff on order...;)

I have the 57L version. I think its a good tank, easy to maintain. I would say block the water inlets top and bottom (I did it with filter foam at bottom and floss at top. I had shrimp go straight in top (I had already done bottom). Doesn't seem to affect the flow from the water pump. Early days for my setup but be great to see what you have in mind.

Was looking at these for a shrimp only tank. Nice looking tank they are.
Did you get the led light with this as well?

You, would need to cover the intake grills with filter floss or filter sponge, as shrimp/small fish would get sucked into the filter chamber!

Update ;)
So I didn't want to add full blown Co2 dosing with a Regulator/Cylinder, therefore opted for the JBL Bio Co2 dosing with the occasional Liquid Carbon!
This has been running for 4 months and there has been a improvement in the plant health...:happy:
Even had the Bucephalandra...flower!
Added Fissidens fontanus….supplied by Filip Krupa:thumbup:
