Planted nano Betta fry and red cherry shrimp tank!

This is my 4 gal cycled betta fry and red cherry shrimp tank.
In there I have 10 betta fry (8 in floating cup as i have a berried shimp about to give birth and i dont want no little hungry babies munching on the shrimplets) and 2 small betta fry in the tank. I have a small colony of red cherry shrimp going about 12 at the moment. And i have about 6 red ramshorn snails.
The plants i have in there are amazon sword , Anunbis nana , java fern , anacharis , marimo moss , ludwigia repens , and a unknown plant.
I have a 8 watt compact flouresent running for 10 hours a day.
Also I feed the plants Ferropol plant fertilizer.

So here are the pics.


Full tanks shot.

There really cool !

Here is my 10 gal high planted tank.
It houses my hm betta Pablo and my two females pk's violet and conseula.
The plants it has are 3 large amazon swords. Ancharis , java fern on driftwood , hornwort , ludwigia , lucky bamboo( leaves out of water) and marimo moss.
I know people dont like housing males and females in the same tank but i gave had great succsess . However its not advised for begginers and you need backup tanks if it all goes wrong. These fish have been living peacefully for a month now , they have even tryed to spawn a few
times. I also think that if you have a male with longer fins he finds it harder and more tiriering to chase the female.

Java fern on driftwood.


Horwort!



Amazon swords and drift wood and marimo moss.


Pablo and conseula. Living in peace.
