I've seen some of the pictures you've posted of your nanos in other threads, they're absolutely gorgeous! They were partially my inspiration. I'm just concerned with getting the right plants and such for them. I'd be a little afraid of putting a shrimp into something so small... But maybe I'm underestiamting them? And MTS don't get very big, do they? What plants do you commonly use?

"Aquariums are like science, art, and hypno-therapy, all rolled into one," I insisted.
"You're not putting a hundred gallon tank in the living room," my roommate replied.

10g "Community" of nothing but Danios - 2g (barely) planted Betta - 2.5g Betta - 1g Pond Snail Repository

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'
