Have had this up for some time now, just wanted to toss it out there.

15 Gallon starter kit from Petco. Tossed the hob filter for an AC50, Heater is now starting to fail. (two heater in it currently)

Petco Black Sand substrate. Some wood and some plants.
Nano Anubias
Java Needles
Crypt
Willow Hygro
Java Moss
Sunset Hygro or Hybrid Hygro.

Plants survive but are not growing much.

Using the light that came with it. Was on 6hr photoperiod, increasing to ~8 hours today.

I was feeding the tank 2x a week with some bottle ferts. Ran out of that last week and will start dry ferting when necessary.

NO3 today before 20% wc 100+

Doing ~ 20% wc weekly.

Looks pretty good. Might want to shove that crypt into the substrate, they don't like floating (but hate being planted, hahaha). What temp is your tank? None of my neocardinia shrimp like it above 75 degrees.

Just get some kinda stone or small piece of drift wood and place on top of glue to it. You wouldn't happen to be in a position to sell some these shrimp are you?

Mine is similar to his^^ but it is a little different. Just grab a few pieces of rock or petrified driftwood and put it on the moss so that it is weighed down on the gravel. Leave it like that until it grabs a hold of the gravel.
