AlexXx’s 10g Shrimparium

This tank is intended for my first attempts at breeding shrimp. I will of course start with Red Cherry Shrimp, because from my research they seem to be the easiest to care for and the fastest to procreate! I tore down my old 10 gallon of female betta fish, added Eco Complete substrate and all the same plants, and a few from my 2.5 gallon which looks relatively bare now. I am still considering a fore ground plant, but I don’t know. I have 2x10 tube day light bulbs, and am using DIY Co2 with a diffuser. I have a single betta in there just for cycling purposes. Im using the same filter media so hopefully the cycling process will go quick so I can add the shrimp soon!
Please give me some advice on a foreground plant and any other scaping advice, I just kinda through stuff in there and I think it came out great. The back left rock was supposed to be just to hold done one of the thicker pieces of wood, but I ended up liking it after a day. Any advice is good advice!
I really don’t know most of the same of the plants, or I would write them down. Thanks for looking! Enjoy















I know mos of you dont care cuz its not betta fish related to much, but im really jus doing it for my friends, a lil update on what ive been up to :)

hope all is well with everyone and their bettas! <3<3<3

Thanks guys, Im sorry i have not been around more, Betta fish keeping has just lead me down the path of aquascaping and planting real plants, and really just showed me the beauty of nature, and what I can do to re-create it in a smaller environment. I have 4 bettas left, 2 boys, 2 girls. They are all happy and healthy! :D Ill try to update yall as the tank grows out! <3<3<3

As far as plants what about naja grass, you can even make a carpet out of java moss. There are a few others but I can't remember the names right now :-/
