Parrotsfeather Nice to see someone else likes ecosystem tanks too! Before my 5 year hiatus I had a 10gal coldwater stream, a 20L Asia swamp full of gouramis, and a 20L Amazon stream. I love seeing a snapshot of fish and plants that would naturally be found together. : )

"Enclosed Worlds"

"As much as it is challenging to create a healthy and thriving fish tank, there is something fascinating about cultivating miniature ecosystems on a small desk – having live fish, shrimps, plants, and micro-infusoria co-existing with one another inside small, enclosed environments. Nano tanks are a constant reminder of the immense power & responsibility that humans have in shaping our natural world and that life thrives within our oceans, rivers, and water bodies within a delicate balance."
(literally--nano tanks can crash faster than larger aquariums)

Latest Fluval Spec V Aquascape (3 months old): Riparian Riverstream Nano Biotope (Southeast Asia) with Celestial Pearl Danios, Emerald Dwarf Danios, Scarlet Badis

Some of the Emerald Dwarf Danios (Celestichthys erythromicron, 2cm in size) sparring:
Part 1: The Staredown.

Part 2: The Wrestling Match.

Some of the Celestial Pearl Danios (Celestichthys margaritatus, 2cm in size) shoaling:

A Scarlet Badis (Dario dario) rising into the light

And it is shocking that CRS/CBS shrimp can actually breed in a 2 Gallon Fluval Spec tank (~5-10 new shrimplets per month).

More New "Enclosed Worlds" incoming...

D@nno Just set mine up yesterday. Ordered a Finnex Stingray today. Mostly Anubius varieties, there is a Java Fern back left and some Narrow Leaf Chain Sword (Pygmy sword?) back right but it's not staying.

Day 1...
