So about 3 weeks ago I started on this tank ago I took out all inhabitants that consisted of about 60 fire reds shrimp, 1 oto, and 1 betta female. I transfered my betta to a gallon jar for the meantime, and my shrimp and oto to a 20l.
Well here goes day 1
Setup hard scape, layed down a thin layer of special kitty, added lava rock for added slope, also added ADA bacter 100
Nevermind the background :)

So, you're using kitty litter, or did I read that wrong?
This is a new one for me, I haven't heard of litter before. :) Is there a benefit to the litter for the plants?
Curious! :) Love the driftwood though. :)
I added a small layer of kitty litter before I put the aquasoil on top, I actually soaked the volcano rock and kitty litter in NPK. I didn't feel like driving an hour to aquaforest to get powersand, so I kind of improvised.
I have kitty litter as a substrate in my 10gall grow out, it's ok on the plants I have real good growth even before I added co2 and started ferts.
So whats the final plan for substrate now? Also, any chance you wanna part with some of those shrimps?
I went with ada aquasoil, I love it but it sure is expensive though.
I gave away half of my shrimp already and kept the deep red ones, I added a couple of painted reds to keep the gene pool different and in hopes of getting more painted reds. So, I can't part with the current shrimp now sorry.
