^wow thanks! it was your journals that really tipped me over to finally do a nano tank.
i found that the fluval stratum is pretty delicate. but it wasn't terrible planting, although the constant dust particles are annoying.
i was debating on how else i can scape the tank to make it look less like a nano, and more like a real, depth filled scape. does that make sense? haha i've seen so many amazing tanks that are tiny, but look huge!
