Cool! any pics availible. it has been slowly evolving for me. At first I wanted to do a planted tank. But right now i think I may be leaning towards more of a rockscape. At the moment it just has some houseplant clippings (pothos) and a little bit of java moss.

Inhabitants are cherry shrimp, trumpet and Ramshorn snails and the spider crabs. the crabs are so tiny. none are larger than a nickle. In the future I may add some Mexican dwarf crays and hopefully some type of micro Rasbora.

Just trying to take it super slow, as I don't want any type of predation.

I went through hell to get them. Ordered from overseas, and after almost 2 months of back and forth with the supplier, and a few hundred spent...

(lots of DOA. At one point he shipped me 80 and only 1 arrived alive). I finally have a decent little colony. Supplier still owes me a substantial quantity.

Nice! Can cherry shrimp take a room temp tank or do they need a heater?
