|cyfan964||Yeah I really have no idea what to do in the back right or the front right. I was thinking about putting the downoi in the back left when it gets bigger and then moving the 'green gecko' crypt to the back right. But I have no idea what to do in the front right/middle... HM, HC, Micro-Sword?|

|oldpunk78||have you thought about adding some stems? HM would look nice in the back right. besides your mini-pellia, what are your plans for the foreground? that moss is gonna look sweet when it grows in some. i just got a one gallon vase that plan on trying out soon. lol, i have no idea what to do with it though. it always seems easier to give others advise.|

Finally got some plants in!
I wrapped Fissidens on the manzanita, planted a 'Green Gecko' cryptocoryne, and there is some mini-pellia sandwiched between that perforated stainless steel.
I'm still waiting on my nano diffuser to come in, but I think I'll hook up my DIY CO2 and run it into the filter tomorrow until the diffuser comes in.
I also have some very small downoi on the way... I'll probably replace those with the crypt when they get a little bigger.
Thoughts/Concerns/Comments??? Love it/hate it?

I love the tank man. Just started made my 20H planted with Amazon Sword and Hornwort. I went with the black sand too but I think you just inspired me to paint the back black. Can you tell me what kind of paint you used.

|oldpunk78||looks good man. fissedens on the wood would look awesome. do it! i wish i would have. you might want to add some more substrate on the right side. you could have a hard time trying to get stems to stay down. downoi can be really hard to find sometimes. just keep looking. you've got a good start there. should look great with plants.|

Sorry for the delay! I've been waiting on a few things to come in... mainly the ADA Amazonia. They said they had some on hand so I ordered, and then they emailed me and said they didn't have any of the 3L on hand so wondered if it would be ok if they sent a partial bag... blah blah blah. Anyway, I got everything set up today.
This is what I am looking at... let me know what you guys think! Any suggestions are appreciated.
I'm still contemplating on what plants to use. I would really like to put a Downoi in the back left on the "hill". Finding this plant has been a royal pain in my side... I may get a chance at one on Monday. I'm thinking of putting Fissedens on the manzanita and maybe doing a carpet of mini-pellia up front and possibly a tight grouping of Rotala 'Nanjenshan' in the back Right near the intake growing up through the manzanita.
What do you guys think? It is going to be strictly a cherry shrimp tank.

|rengb6||any updates yet?! I'm curious as to how it has turned out!|

Got my manzanita
oldpunk78 was gracious enough to sell me some awesome looking manzanita for my nano. I got the package today and am incredibly pumped with the pieces! As soon as I get my substrate (hopefully tomorrow) I am going to be needing help from you guys on how to arrange it and what pieces to use!

|pamiboo||It's so cute and tiny, I love it!|

|CL||It looks good to me. You did a good job cleaning up the silicone. Don't let fishman see, because he broke a 5.5 gallon tank doing the same thing last night.|

Finished with the painting of the glass. I think it turned out pretty well! Sorry for the glare.
Now I just need to wait on substrate, filter, and manzanita .
