Lovely neat tank Nilotpal :)

Here are some pointers -
1. Do cover the inlet of the HOB with sponge. What is the HOB flow/hour and also what filter media you are planning to put?

2. Change the cfl to led, it will help in not increasing the water temp.

3. Drop some fish like guppy, molly to complete the cycle then if shrimp only tank remove the fishes and get the shrimps :)

Looking forward to more updates :)

Thanks Abhisek...
1. I will cover the inlet before adding sponge. :) Activated Carbon I thought off.
2. CFL will be changed. Planning for the led like below(any pointer/site)

Good start Nilotpal, keep updating on the progress.

May I know which brand is the HOB? I quite like the transparency, looks very neat.
Cheers,
