Default Planted 20 gallon

Here is my planted 20 gallon tank, it is home to guppies, neons, and shrimp (red cherry shrimp, ghost shrimp, and Indian White-Banded shrimp. the three specie will not interbreed).

Plants:
Arrow plant -back left of tank
Jungle Vallisnaria - back right corner
water wisteria - left side mid tank
java moss - right of Roman column tank decor
unknown moss - right in front of Java moss
Dward Hair Grass - left of Roman column
Sagitaria - right side front of tank
Peacock fern - Left side forward of middle

the first picture is without flash in a darkened room, the second is with fill flash in a darkened room using a Kodak Easy Share 3.2 mega pixel camera with no zoom.

The tank is coming on a treat.

Interesting comment Dave - about the shrimp not interbreeding, because that was a question that I have thought about. I have RC Shrimp and some of which are all white, I wondered if they interbred, you obviously think they dont. - That's great news then for me.

Jelly, the all white ones could be male red cherry shrimp if they are of the same body shape and slightly smaller than the females. Some shrimp specie do interbreed (blues and cherries for example).

to see if you can get them to color up some boil some spiniach leaves and feed to the tank.

And thanks all for the kind words about the looks of the tank

Dave
