    Sand substrate root tabs
    Peacock moss
    Moss balls
    Crypts and some apongs
    Dwarf hair grass
    And some random stem plant that came with a pack of bunches plants lol
    White clouds
    Red cherry shrimp
    Mystery snail
    3 (for now) Malaysian trumpet snails
    Had a lot of fun setting this little guy up. It wasn’t planned to keep the minnows with the shrimp but with all the green in the tank the red really pops so I couldn’t resist:)

    I could take out the heater but my home temp fluctuates a lot so I keep one in all my tanks

    Any ideas to help me get either species to breed (besides separating them) would be awesome

    I plan to get more cover for the shrimp, and when the summer comes the white clouds might get an outside pond home.
    But since I have to wait awhile to move the white clouds and they aren’t attacking my fully grown shrimp if they propagate in the tank together in the first place I won’t even move them.

    Cool! I wish I could get a tank like that. Unfortunately, I'm stuck with only a 3-gallon. As for breeding, the only advice I can give you is for shrimp. This is what I heard: Just give them lots of plants, and tubes and things to hide in, and they'll do the rest. Not sure if that's right though, or if the rules change with fish in the tank. :)

    That’s along the lines of what I’ve heard. Lots of moss and caves
    I may run into the problem of the fish eating the babies but as long as more survive then get eaten the population should grow with fish in the tank, it will just be slower. I’m not looking for maximum output so that’s fine with me:)
