3g CRS build

Postby IraqVet » Tue Sep 10, 2013 7:28 pm

This will be a 3g Crystal Red Shrimp tank. I got the 3g column at Walmart in the craft section. I currently have a small heater and internal filter. I am looking for a small HOB filter and an LED clamp light. I have fine garnet sand as a substrate which I hope to cover with some ground cover plants. I have a nice stem plant that should nearly reach the surface of the 6x6x17 column.
