Name of your Tank: o.o I hadn't thought about that... haha.
Substrate type: Soil with black sand cap.
Dimensions: Something that equals ten gallons. :P I don't know where the tape measure went.
Is It A Natural Planted Tank: It is a Walstad NPT.
Water Volume: 10 gallon.
Water Temperature: 82 degrees.
Water change schedule: 25% once every six months or so.
Age of tank: 17 months.
Co2: Not at present. I had DIY CO2 for 2 months a few months ago, but switched to siesta method (lights off for 4 hours a day in the middle of the day). Thinking of going back to CO2 because I have so much light, but it's about time for new bulbs so I can cut back the light a bit.
Lighting: 40W at 6500K. Total of 10 hours a day. 5 hours on, 4 off, 5 on.
Fertilizers: Ehhh. 0.5mm Flourish once in a while. Otherwise, poooo!
Stock: One delta tail, one ghost shrimp, and a ton of snails.
Plant Species: Wisteria, java moss, dwarf hair grass, dwarf sagittaria, vallisneria, pennywort (one tiny, but growing, piece), a tiny (but growing!) anubias, Amazon sword, 2 red rubin swords (babies! in the back), red dwarf lily, dying hornwort and anacharis because there's too much light, Christmas moss.

Name of your Tank: The Shrimp Tank
Substrate type: Silica sand (and I think I need more of it)
Dimensions: No idea, it's a 10G tank
Is It A Natural Planted Tank: no
Water Volume: 10 gallon.
Water Temperature: 78 degrees.
Water change schedule: 10% once a month or so.
Age of tank: set it up at Christmas, but moved it two months ago, so had to drain it.
Co2: No
Lighting: LED
Fertilizers: Flourish on occasion
Stock: ATM 4 RCS, on occasion two nerites (they love to explore), and a gaggle of pond snails and herds of MTS
Plant Species: 2 large swords, some crypts, cabomba, 2 moss balls, 1 stem of anubis that regrew nicely. Some hygrophilia (pink veined) and another plant or two I'm not sure of. Plus lots of moss. Java I believe, plus one or two java ferns under the mass of other plants. I'm not sure if it's frogbit or giant duckweed that I have floating there.

I had a dozen RCS and 6 CRS in here, but I had a complete and utter crash and lost them all about a month ago. $100 worth of shrimp, gone. :/ If the shrimp don't survive this time it'll be home to my halfmoon who hates full WC's and is a horrid tail biter. Possibly some corries. As you can see this was divided at one point, but I decided to give up on that.
