Nice tank. Do you use CO2? What is the name of the large purple plant?

Thanks! I still use co2 in this tank. However, I only keep neos in it now. The plant I think your reffering to is ludwigia "mini super red".

Thanks for all the compliments! This tank has undergone several transformations in the last several years. The Amazonia soil is about 3 years old and still buffers the water to a PH of 7.0. It houses my blue diamonds.

So beautiful . Does the unpleasant plant need co2

im not sure which "unpleasant" plant were you referring too. Lol!! If your talking about the red ludwigia it doesn't require co2 to grow.

Looks beautiful, must of been one of your first shrimp tanks?

lol! It was actually my second shrimp tank (planted tank converted to shrimp) and first attempt at crs. I failed there!

I started with cherry shrimp back in 2010. They started breeding out of control just using plain tap water. That's when I became fascinated with shrimp. I'll have to find a pic of that tank. It had flourescent gravel and a giant goldfish in it. :)


Here's the old thread for my 12g when I started it
