Hello, This will be my attempt at a planted aquarium.  So far I have the substrate, and driftwood for it as well as filters, lighting, etc. I am in hopes once I get the plants to grow in introduce to shrimp and fish.

I got it all finished and planted in. Took quite a while but it looks great. No fish or shrimp yet, but I got snails to help clean it up.









The snails do a good job of cleaning the tank, but lay eggs everywhere. I have trouble keeping up.








And they do this wierd surface feeding behavior where they float upside down. Very interesting.

Eggs everywhere. Luckily apparently if You mix two snail species, they will eat each other's eggs.



Came back, later to find this.
