Hey guys check out my new project! 4x nano tank! UPDATE, NOW A 5X nano with saltwater
 
I recently just set this up and think it came out really cool! What do you guys think? suggestions on what fish/ inverts to stock?
I'm not done yet, I may add a sump or custom rig a canister filter with 4 inlets and outlets. I need a way to heat these too.... Here are stats on each tank:
http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps6eab706b.jpg
Tank 1: custom mini sponge filter, amethyst crystals, anubias petite, cabomba furcata. Dosing phertz, excel and flourish.

Thank 2:Mini sponge filter, driftwood with slate foreground and rock background. Java fern, anubias petite, blyxa japonica. Dosing phertz,flourish, and excel

tank 3: this tank has a dirt bottom(mgopm) capped with sand. I'm dosing phertz, flourish and using a hagen mini elite with DIY co2 pumped in plus exel for good measure. High tech tank to pamper the staurogyne repens tropica that is dying in my 90g.

Tank 4: custom sponge filter no dosing at all, mgopm bottom, black sand cap, crystal and lava rock. Ludwiga aromatic....sp? This ones not really done yet.



Update, tanks as of 1/20

I think 3 will look awesome once the staurogyne fills in.http://i179.photobucket.com/albums/w...ps471c7f67.jpg

yes i like tank 3 the best.
for tank 2, do you have any substrate for those blyxa? assuming thats what they are. every other plant is fine w/o substrate but i think blyxa might want some.

SpecGrrl 09-20-2012 02:17 AM

Nice!

Your crystals are interesting. -- how did you choose them?

Nope no substrate. I've been growing them like that upstairs in my 90g and they do ok. I can't get blyxa to stay rooted no matter what I do anyway.

Thanks! They are just random crystals that I sniped on eBay. The amethyst is pretty cheap. That black crystal I do not k ow the name of.

If it were you guys, would you go with a sump setup or canister filter with in line heater modded for 4 inlets and outlets? Or would you just leave it alone and get 4 mini hydor heaters"

Newman 09-20-2012 02:31 AM

sump it up for sure.

fishboy199413 09-20-2012 02:40 AM

I love this idea. I wish I had the space for something like this too breed fish and propagate plants. Just to ask what size tank these are?

Newman 09-20-2012 02:57 AM

they look like 2.5gals or 3 gals

mr2 09-20-2012 03:24 AM

They are 2.5gallons

vvDO 09-20-2012 03:24 AM

I'm going to guess 5 gal tanks, nice setup!!

Edit: guess not... Would have never thought they were that small

shinycard255 09-20-2012 12:25 PM

Wow, only 2.5G! I would have thought at least 5G tanks.

Looking good though, keep it up
