Update, the tank had a mini meltdown over Xmas, the lights aren't on a timer so when I was away for 2 weeks I figured I'd leave them off since the tank is next to a window anyway. My fish sitter who came to check on the tanks turned the lights on so they were on 24/7 for a while.
The tank is still pretty to look at and the shrimp are healthy but I think I might need to do stuff to it more than I've been doing. Sorting out the plants some and fertilize. We'll see

|tylergvolk||Subscribed. Inspired to try a nano. I love the low maintenance of this tank. Very cool. Keep us updated periodically.|

I really like this tank!
You mention the filter was noisy. How so? What did you do to calm it down?
Where can I buy this tank?

..and yes it's about time to trim the plants more, I've trimmed a bit of the downoi already but I need to be more aggressive.
I'm not supplementing carbon at all, no excel or Co2 and I'm barely fertilizing either, just a few drops every week with the water change and I don't remember to turn the light on every day either. The tank is next to a window and gets some natural light but that window is sort of in the shade of a wall so doesn't get super sunlight through it or anything.
The plants are growing very slowly but they seem healthy enough and Im not having huge algae problems or anything so I'm quite happy with the tank ticking over super low tech. It's the easiest tank to care for that Ive had so far and I'm really happy with how it looks.

|talontsiawd||Wow, awesome little tank. Scape/plant choice is very nice. I really am interested in one of these tanks. That sucks it can't go on a timer. I really like what you did here.|

|bassmjm||...actually, looking at it again, the hairgrass mimicking the shape of the rocks in that latest fts is kind of really cool...|

Great tank! I like the feeling of both balance and solidity from the rocks. Are you using any kind of carbon supplement at all (i.e. excel?)
...It's about time to trim the downoi though, maybe the staurogyne, too.

Update, everything is ticking along nicely still:
Bit tempted to add more livestock, I've only got the 3 amano shrimp in there and they're quite often just hidden away in the thicket of plants so I don't see them. At the same time though the tank is really low maintenance and easy to keep and seems to be in a good balance so I should probably just go with the if it ain't broke, don't fix it.

It was sold as "Mini Landscape Rock" basically unbranded Seiryu Stone and cheaper but just as good £2.5 per kg instead of close to £7 per kg over here.
I'm really happy with it
