nice start looks like your going low tech. 4.3 gal is yours a 10" cube? I do see two neons in there maybe a smaller fish would give you a better scale.

Looks like an excellent start. Do give back those neons. They need a larger group to be happy and a much larger aquarium.

Where did you get the black screen for the moss wall? All I can ever find is white.

The screen is from a craft super store called micheals not sure if its a canadian store or not but they have it...

I work at a wholesalers so the neons can go back anytime,i acually saved these 2 from sure death.

I have access to any fish there is what do u think could go in here?I have a red halfmoon betta that was living in there for a while,but i was thinking maybe galaxy rasboras or just crs if its really too small for fish?

i usually have no fish in my nano reefs so im used to that.
This was my last nano,a mostly carribean algea and invert tank.

Thanks. We have a Micheals here as well. I'll check there.

I would say put some shrimp in there, but then again some fish might be cool too. It's a nice scape though, either way.

I like your reef nano as well.

In the first pictures, I think you have a dead neon stuck to the intake What do you plan on doing for the foreground. Either way, it'll look great when filler in. Also, I'd go with a nice grade crs like an A or S which should really pop in the tank. Good Luck!

Bad me! I didnt notice the neon till after. Im not sure about the forground but im open to suggestions? Would HC or dwarf HG be ok under only 18 watts? I could add C02 if i needed to?
