2.5g Planted DSM check it out!!


Hi guys

This is my 2.5g planted nano. I'm going to be doing a DSM for well untill my patience runs out lol, but I'm shooting for 3 weeks.

Flora: DHG, Narrow Leaf Ludwigia, and Microsword
Fauna: Not sure yet, i want to try shrimp but im not certain on what i really want for this tank. I was also thinking a betta and some shrimp. any suggestions?

Aside from the DHG will the narrow leaf ludwigia and microsword do ok dry start? i'd imagine so but im not sure

Without further adieu i present my tank! (sorry for quality, from my cell phone)

Looks very nice! I am currently doing a dry start with the same tank. My journal will be up soon. I think all of those should be fine growing emersed, but I have seen a few people say the ludwigia might melt a bit when converting.

I really want to do a DSM, but I have no patients. Waiting for the temperatures to drop to order shrimp is killing me already. Look forward to seeing your progress.
