Lower Manhattan Nano Planted Tanks

Hey all

New to the forum, but not the the planted hobby. Ive been scaping for a few years and Ive just done some smaller tanks where I live now in Chinatown/Little Italy. I have two 7.9 gal Fluval tanks, rimless open top, with one 24'' double tube HO Coral Life 6700k T5, and 2 Aquaclear 20 Filters. One of the tanks also has a 13W power compact as well as a nano presurized Co2 system using 88gram canisters. The tank with the Co2 is also heated with 9 Cardinals, Furcata Rainbow, 5 female Gertitude Rainbows, 1 pygmy honey gourmai, 1 sparkling grourami, ottos, panda corys, and hara jerdoni (mini moth catfish). The other tank is select male endlers, very high quality and ottos with nice nerite snails.

Heated Tank Plants
-Dwarf Hairgrass
-Star grass
-Rotalla Walichi
-narrow leaf sword plants
-Hygro carumbusa
-rotala indiga
-Marsh Mermaid Weed
-Fontinelis Hypnoids
-and some sort of gold nasea

Endler Tank PLants
-Narrow leaf Hornwort
-Flame moss
-Corkscrew val
-Dwarf Pennywort

Excuse my spelling

Post is you might be interested in some cuttings some times or trade or some things

I also have a 2 gal Fluval Spec(1rst gen) that has a 13w power compact, 8 sakura fire red shrimp and white sand using a sort of iwagumi style with clean java moss.

I posted my double tank combo on my images, the tanks are right next to each other beacause they are 11.6 inchs and I use a 24'' light.
