Check out the two tanks that I personally keep below.
45 GALLON COMMUNITY TANK
Below you can see my 45 gallon community tropical tank. I have a Cascade 1000 canister filter keeping this tank clean. There is also an airstone that can be seen on the right side of the tank. All of the plants in this tank are live. There is a bunch of java moss up front, with a lot of Amazon swords and one anubias plant. There are two pieces of Malaysian driftwood. There are also 5 pieces of wonder rock and 3 pieces of Lava rock. The substrate is simple play sand with some left over gravel that is supposed to be under it, but has been dug up.
RED CHERRY SHRIMP TANK
This is a simple 10 gallon RCS tank. I have a sponge filter that can be seen in the back left. The centerpiece is a large piece of driftwood that the shrimp love to graze on. There are currently around 50 adult shrimp and 50 small baby shrimps living in this tank.
