Here is a side view of my 7G stand-by nano tank, it is built up of spare equipment: Fluval 2 filter, Rena 100w heater, Tetra AP30 air pump.
I tried making it completely fish orientated as in i have left swimming space either side but densely planted the centre, behind the bogwood is a mini java fern forest taking shape, it supplies cover and shade for the fish.
I also put a bit of hornwort in to add colour and shade and fill in a few gaps in-between.
It contains 5 Serpae tetra, all permanent
3 baby bristle-nosed catish, one will stay
2 Black neon tetra, not permanent.
A few small snails.

Nice.... If you are uploading more than one picture to the site than you will just have to reply to your thread as many times as needed to get all your pictures posted. Otherwise if you have pictures uploaded already at a different site, you can post as many in one post as you like using the insert picture button.

Looking good bro...
Beware the shading from your Hornwort...if you use it as a wall in the background it will give the tank a whole new look. Some java moss would do well in the foreground and maybe a couple more of the ferns These nice nanos are killin me , I want to try one !

Its coming along nicely my friend !

Yeh i tried putting the horwort along the back but the stupid things uproot themselves, they will rather grow floating which spoils the look of the tank a bit but yeh i think i mite just try some java moss along the front and i might line the walls of the corners but leave it slightly open still.
