Quick update on the big aquarium

Today I introduced some leaf litter.I'd collected some beach leaves. Put those in the microwave for 3 minutes and soaked them for 24 hours to get them nice and waterlogged. Even so they needed a few pebbles to weigh them down.

The shrimp went absolutely crazy over them. Within minutes they were exploring every pore of the leaves. Soon after followed the snails.

I also took an overview picture. Plantwise I'm now quite happy with the looks.

Absolutely gorgeous! Do you find the leaves make the water coloured or cloudy?
