Pear grass forest in a shrimp tank
I’m sharing some photos of my 10 gallon painted fire red shrimps breeding tank. The tank bottom is covered with pearl grass (Hemianthus micranthemoides) plants. This plant doesn’t belong to a group of aquarium carpeting plants, it’s grow tall. However, if you cut it often and let it spread, it will create a carpet-like cover in your tank. This is what I have here.
You will be surprised, but I have about 1/2″ of black inert sand at the bottom and I don’t add any fertilization to this tank.
Look at the photos with this aquarium.
Look at pearl grass (Hemianthus micranthemoides) plant that I’m growing there
And one more photos with a little riccia island floating on the top.
I’m planning to trim pearls grass in this tank. It will make a big difference. Stay tuned
