I think the tank size on the smaller side.


for CRS, it's better to use 20 gallon or 80 liters above, I'm not saying that it's can't be done, but bigger tank make it much easier.


no need for Mini vacuum Gravel Cleaner, it does more harm than help.


Mineral Stone is too much, 10 gram is good enough.

I agree with James on the tank size, I have had problems with water parameters swings on my 7.5g tank that has about 24L of water in it. Its possible just much less forgiving if something goes wrong. I had a juvi shrimp die that started a chain reaction of deaths, if the tank was larger I most likely would not have had such an issue. I am switching over to 10g tanks so 37L.
