What a great little home to your shrimp! Lovely use of fine textured plants and hardscape. The 'blunt' cut-off piece of wood adds a point of unnatural distraction, but it's a minor critisism. Well done!

George Farmer

Pretty, mature tank, and a lovely home for your shrimp. I'm not sure that the Proserpinaca adds to the dispaly, as it pulls hard at the eye, and takes attention away from your brightly colored shrimp.

Karen Randall

The plantings in this tank are lush and healthy. There are very interesting splashes of color. However, the layout, in effect, is nothing more than a boring wall. There are no distinctive scenarios to draw the eye toward. In fact, it is very difficult to pull the eye from the bright flash in the upper left corner. Unfortunately, this renders the aquascape ineffective.
