Setting up my 12 Litre Nano Shrimp Tank – Part 3

Part 3

My last batch of plants arrived, and have planted them in, the waters gone really cloudy again but not to worry. I’ll have a few more water changes to do before it’s complete. Water changes take about 10 seconds on a nano shrimp tank this small it’s definitely one of the positives.

Got that cheap Chinese light on it as well which is really bright. Illuminates the tank nicely, looks really good.

Light had arrived, took a quick picture before I start filling the tank with more plants!

Hopefully the plants will turn a bit more green and vibrant once settled in the tank.

After planting, the water has gone really cloudy again as I disturbed the substrate by planting.

Tank is looking fantastic, lots of hiding places for the shrimp.

I think I achieved that really dense forest scape I was going for. Also loving the little clearing I have at the front.

Really pleased with the tank so far. Need to syphon all the water out again to get it really clear.

The next post will include some clearer images of the tank after I do a few water changes. I’ll have to do some chemical tests to make sure the water is free of ammonia before adding any Shrimp.
