 First  of  all  i'd  like  to  thank  Nayak(for  the  moss),  Karthik  Nambiar(for  the  rocks)  and  Abhishek  Menon  for  the  plants!
 
 I  actually  didn't  plan  on  making  this  as  a  shrimp  tank,  but  after  seeing  Tushar's  huge  colony  of  rcs  (which  i  had  actually  given  him  few  months  ago)  was  dragged  back  into  loving  shrimps  again!
 
 this  is  just  a  beginning,  the  tank  is  only  four  days  old  now,  i  have  to  add  more  moss  and  some  java  ferns  which  i  got  from  a  fellow  hobbyist.
 
 inverts  in  tank:
 red  cherry  shrimps-  14  (neocaridinia  heteropoda  var.  'red')
 green  shrimps-  9  +20  (shrimplets  (Caridina  cf.  babaulti  spp.  'green')  [1  carrying]
 rainbow  shrimps-  7  (caridinia  cf.  babaulti)  [1  carrying]
 red  nosed  shrimps-  3  (Caridina  gracilirostris)
 indian  zebra  shrimp-  1  (caridinia  cf.  babaulti  var.  'stripes')
 3  assassin  snails  plus  a  dozen  eggs
 
 NOTE:  please  don't  tell  me  that  they'll  interbreed,  the  only  interbreeding  possibility  are  with  the  green  and  rainbow  shrimps,  which  i  don't  really  care!  also  i  know  the  front  of  tank  looks  barren,  i  plan  on  adding  foreground  plants  and  DIY  co2.
 
 plants:
 hygrophila  polysperma
 ambulia
 cabomba
 christmas  moss  (need  more  to  cover  the  second  rock)
 java  ferns  (have  to  add  two  more  rhizomes  to  the  rock)
 Hydrocotyle  tripartita
 crypts
 rotala  'red'  (need  more  of  these  stems,  anyone  got?)
 
 and  the  other  two  i  keep  forgetting  the  name,  someone  please  ID  them  for  me  please.  the  one  next  to  the  right  rock  and  the  red  stemmed  plant.
 
 tank  details:
 1  foot  cube
 sponge  filter(soon  going  to  switch  to  HOB)
 18w  DIY  PL  lighting
 substrate-  contro  soil  mixed  with  german  clay
 daily  15%  water  change(helps  with  shrimp  growth  and  to  clean  out  debris)
 
 Feeding:
 daily  scampi  Feed
 twice  a  week  boiled  veggies
 
 here  are  the  pics,  many  more  to  come  soon  Smile  sorry  for  the  bad  clarity,  my  phone  doesn't  have  a  great  camera!  couldn't  get  decent  pictures  of  the  new  shrimplets  either
 
 
 
 
 newly  tied  christmas  moss
 
 
 spot  the  assassin  snail  egg  Very Happy  this  egg  came  just  6  hours  after  i  put  this  plant.
