Hi, will introduce myself. I am peter a Dutch aquascaper, and I love nano tanks. I will regularly post updates of my nano tanks in this topic. Hope you can enjoy the tanks, will first start with the 19L tank.

Few days after the planting, now it is up to the plants themselves.

Very nice. Your DIY controller sounds very interesting. Are you able to remotely monitor your aquarium?

Yes of course i can tell more about the controller. It is fully home made, from design to final. Will now post some pictures, and will later open a topic about the controller, if there is a need for it.

Cost of PCB, lcd and buttons are 25 euro, encloser was 3.29 euro. Total was just under 30 euro.

Front, old picture, firmware was not finished jet.


back


Couple PCB v1.0. In this picture you see the wireless socket, white plug on the right. they are quite cheap here in the Netherlands, 15 euro's for three plugs and remote.



Now ontopic.

Just an update of my nano tank, picture from yesterday.

I have a new scape, The big rock.

It's so new and clean now, i do not like so much if it is new and clean. what do you think, it's good start?



I now have a dosing pump for plant fertilizer. Give every day automatically nutrition to the plants.


Edit/
Scape is not finished, must buy more plants.

I love them all! What is the plant along the front of the tank in the last picture?

Christmas moss? Peacock moss?

I had completely forgotten to post this picture, i think it's the best picture of this setup. The tank was at this point best in my opinion.
