nano tank 30L

Hi all, i'm new (i've been lurking this forum for 2 years)


this is my second planted tank ... well this is the same tank but i changed home so i rescaped that.


Dennerle tank, 30L (about 6 Gallons i think)
flora: Cryptocorine parva, hygrophila difformis, riccia fluitans, Hydrocotile tripartita, glossostigma elatinoides, hemianthus micr. , pogostemon helferi, X plant on the background (really can't remember the name)

fauna: 7 galaxy (danio margaritatus), 1 otocinclus, 2 red nose gracilirostris

fertilization: one week daily fertilizer, then stopped daily and went Dennerle S7-e15-v30

Co2: Askoll + Dennerle, 60 bpm


problems: some algae on the wood (but it isn't ugly, it seems natural). Some yellow leaves on the back glossostigma (the lower one) which is natural but probably it doesn't receive much light.
I probably have to change the background plants with higher one

3 weeks by starting

Very nice. Those parva are nicely packed together. May I ask, what is the purpose of that blue wire beneath the parva?

How do you plant such small plants and the substrate still looks untouched and smooth?

thank you very much



well the most problematic plant in my opinion is hemianthus. It is tiny and at the beginning it often melts at the base.
So you have to cut it (che brown part) , clean and replant.
It's a pain...

you have to do this in soft way, you have to be really patient and use a good nipper.


Glosso is easier but it is slower setting roots. Once it has eradicated it begins to grow really fast.

glosso/riccia/hygrophila are pearling and seems really good


green algae are only growing on the wood but i don't know if i have to clean it o leave it for the shrimps/oto
