thanks. i was trying to go somewhere between that and an alpine landscape, you know where the trees will only grow towards a certain level because it's too cold above it? i wish the tank was a bit longer--it could use more negative space.
Amazing what 6 months or so will do! Scape is looking uh-mazing! As for scaping ideas. Ive recently become very fond of endler livebearers . Great color, not very well known in the trade yet, would be a good addition I think! just dont get any females unless you want a breeding fest! Some RCS might add some nice algae control/color!
@DTDPlanted: thanks for the suggestion on the endlers, but actually I had something else in mind. there's a genus of recently discovered fish from the Characin family called Tyttocharax, that max out at 2 cm. I am in process of obtaining a small school of 12--being tetras and their upturned gapping mouths suggesting that they are fin nippers, they will probably be the only fish swimming in the water column. https://www.google.com/search?q=tytt...EILJigLI7oDADw
@amanda: thanks very much--that's the best thing with nano tanks... you can get the most bang for your buck! like i said, the trick is in the details. lots of details will make the tank look bigger than it seems.
@nwa-planted: awwwwww.... i hope you mean that i've inspired you. we've all got to start from somewhere right? money helps. hahahahah. here was my first planted tank:

Reason: spacing issues
@amanda: it is a ton of fun, but it is also challenging at times. but it's those challenges that make the end results worth it! get ready to use lots a bent tweezers and forceps...maybe a bamboo skewer or two!
