    About 11 days ago i added some more rocks as i felt the scape was looking a bit empty. This is how the tank looks as of today

    Hi Seetharam,

    Once again, gorgeous, I see your reason for adding the rock, it does give more visual interest. I guess I think it would work either way!

    In an odd way the original (less rock) reminded me of Jersey, Channel Islands.

    It had been a long time plan of mine to keep Crystal Red Shrimps, but never had a proper tank available to keep them, thats when i decided to dedicate one planted tank for these beautiful inverts, at that time i was dreaming of having a planted tank with a only Cuba carpet and i decided to club both. Hence began the cuba tank and today after adding my second batch of CRS the plan which started in February of this year has been fulfilled.

    I present to you the inhabitants of my Cuba Tank :)
