    My Shrimp Tank

    I'm going to swap out the java on the wood for weeping moss or fissidens when I can get some. I may get another "tree" for the other side, because I wanted something to hide the filter, alhough I need to remember, this is only a mini 12 litre tank, so the footprint is tiny (20 x 25cm floor)...

    Shrimp Always Die!

    do you have any resin/plastic ornaments in the tank? I bought a "resin" tree planted with something on top.
