    Hey everybody, this is going to be a journal as well as a place for any feedback or input from you all. I finally had the time to get my old 10 gal out of storage. I filled it up 2 times and used some white vinegar to clean it out. As of now it is running with just the new filter(Marineland bio-wheel) and new sand to get the small sand particles out of the water. I'm going to use my established filter as well and taking some media from it or my some from my other filters to help the cycle start quickly. I plan to stick with more endlers and a ton of shrimp. What can else can i fit in there?

    Alright. Would the shrimp also be ok in the tank?

    6 Ghost Shrimp, or RCS would be fine.

    i'm going to do a lightly-medium planted tank to provide the fish and shrimp with a place to hide. Should i put the plants in the tank and then fill it up or what
