So I have a total of 10 Amano shrimp now, and 2 Golden Apple snails along with 5 Otos. It's safe to say I've got way too many Algae eating units in my tank.
However they are very fun to watch.
My Eheim 2215, Lilly pipes, purigen and a few smaller items should be in next week. I am excited to get this tank fully setup.
The Betta seems to get stressed out a lot when I do any adjustments to the tank with plants. Perhaps slowly adding new items over time will be better.
Sorry for the bad photo guys. I only had my phone.
The tank so far is coming along nicely. Please excuse the cloudiness. This photo was taken almost imediately after I set the last plant and added the driftwood. The little mesh bag in the back corner is packed with Christmas Moss that has not yet found a proper place.
