    My new CRS tank

    Just want to share my new tank that is going to hold some CRS in the future
    Some info:
    - Tank: UNS 25C (4 gallon)
    - Substrate: UNS Controsoil fine
    - Water: RO remineralized with GH+ to 130 TDS
    - Scape material: 3x large cholla wood pieces, couple dragon stone pieces I had laying around
    - Plants: some DHG, dwarf sag, anacharis, hornwort, java fern windelov (glued to the cholla wood in the back right), big chunk of subwassertang that you cant really see, and some red plants I bought but I forgot the name.

    Let me know what you think!

    Nice! I just got a UNS 25c as well will be scaping soon

    I would personally stand the dragon stone on the right side upright and make a path way possibly.

    I wanted to do a path as well with 2 islands on each side, but the tank is so small and the pieces I got are so big (1/3 the tank width) so I decided to do the cliff thing.
    Also, wanted to hide the sponge filter and there wouldn't be any space.

    Dragon stone piece are quite easy to break usually if you ever want to try the path way haha. Good job hiding the sponge filter cause I dont see it haha.

    Some quick update and question on this tank. So I added 10x CRS and they are surviving just fine, I think. I can only find a maximum of 6 of them at a time so I hope the rest are just hiding.

    One issue I noticed is that there are a LOT of copapods in the tank, like a lot! I googled and someone said that they removed the copapods so the shrimps can flourish. anyone else has experience with this issue? I do noticed that the copapods swarm the food when I put them in so I am thinking to add in a couple of guppy frys so they can eat up the copapods, what do you guys think?

    I dropped a slow moving betta and removed him once he chomped the majority of it.

    Bettas are pretty hardy!

    Yeah they are pretty hardy. I already had the betta who was in a different tank in the same room so the temp was relatively the same. I just plunked him in there and he immediately started chasing the cyclops.
