Thanks! This is my first nano tank but definitely not my first tank lol. Trust me, I did go through the "colorful marble and substrate" stage when I was a kid
I did get more serious after owning my 20g after college, then I went home and stayed with my parents for 2 yrs and convinced my dad to get a huge tank
But back then I still didnt really think much about spacing and flow of things, I just added all sort of plants that I can think of, but this is still one of the nicest tank that me and my dad had so far:
Then I left home for work and my dad didn't have much time to keep it up, so after a year, it did not look as good anymore
I still bug my dad to spend more time on the tank, but he has a busy schedule now
Nano tank is something new to me, it is actually both challenging and interesting given the restriction of space. Think I'm falling in love with nano tanks now :P The only problem is that I cannot get to keep my favorite blue rams in my nanos....*sigh* I <3 blue rams!
