substrate is going to be sand and its going to dressed with slate and red
moor wood again and its going to be planted with moss star grass and
hair grass and some water Lilly type plants fish will be angels rummy nose

Like the sound of those Biff, some crystal shrimp would be nice. They had some of those at paddock farm. Don't know what fish, you would need something that wouldn't eat shrimp fry if they start breeding. Maybe cardinals or something small, glo eye maybe.
