About 4 months ago I set up this 10 gallon in my college apartment. About 1 month ago I added 2 red cherry shrimp and they are taking over! The tank also hold 5 celestial danios who are quite shy and 2 ottos.
In this one you can kind of see a celestial danio (blur on the left in front of the java moss covered rock)
It is pretty low-tech. I just have the original top but replaced the bulbs with fluorescent ones. I add no ferts or anything besides the flourite substrate. Most of the plants came from my big fishtank back home. I only bought 2 crypts which keep producing babies and some microsword 3 weeks ago. It seems to be taking off as well.
I love the danios. They tend to come out if you stand still long enough and their colors are amazing! They just tend to dart into their corner if there is any movement.

Your Java Moss looks EXCELLENT!!! I am trying to grow some in my tank, but it continues to turn green and then die off. What do you give yours to make it grow so well? _________________ ConvectiveWeather: www.convectiveweather.com
I normally put 1/4 capfull of excel in the tank maybe once a week and I have DIY CO2 running. I think the java moss mostly does well due to the shrimp. I will have to go soon and cut off most of it. It has a habit of taking over the left side of the tank and all the driftwood.
