Deep Blue 1.5 Gall

Hey all!
Decided to try my hand at nano tanks! I have kept 10 galls and 2.5 galls with plants but I want this to be my first "real" nano tank. So after being inspired by the many beautiful nano's that members have, I decided to start mine!
This thread is for the purpose of keeping data for the tank to look back on, for other people to learn from my mistakes and successes, and for people to help me make my nano aquaria work!
Now let the fun begin!

Tank specs
-1.5 Gallon Deep Blue tank
-No heater yet
-No filter(because to small a aquarium and want it to be relatively low tech)
-5500k bulb(not sure on wattage right now, plan to switch to a 6700k or 6500k)
-Play Sand
-Plan to add either oak, beech, or maple branches to it with java moss on them( feel free to tell me if any of these trees are poisonous)
- Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate and PH will have to wait unitll tomorrow

- Some sort of hygro
- Another stem that needs ID
- Dwarf Chain Sword
-Java Moss

- Ramshorn snail
-Red Cherry Shrimp
-Possibly ember tetras once tank mature

- Seachem Flourish
- Seachem Excel
- I will look into pps dosing

Now let's see if I can get some pics to work...

Those plants should fill in the aquarium very quickly. I would make it a shrimp paradise and avoid fish in such small quarters. Maybe add some moss to add diversity and places for shrimps to hide.

Anyway, good luck with your nano.

Wouldn't hygro be too big for a nano?
