My first nano(aquaone all in one 28litre??)




As it stands been running for 2 weeks now

Running stock everything apart from light which is a cheap Chinese 3x3w led down light

Pretty bright compared to the stock led light

The moss is showing a small amount of growth after a week now

Gunna grab a heater and maybe throw a few tetras in there or a betta

So far it's looking good

Also I have given it a minor dose of seachem flourish and that's about it

Maybe it is a bad picture. Is that severe algae in the front? and is that plant in the back really brown/yellow and decaying?

Have had it going for a few weeks just waiting for that initial agae to role through

And that Val is doing good now that trimmed the bad bits off it some what



Most of these plants were added just before taking the picture

Also rescaled to a much pleasing look

Most of the plants come from a tank that has a yeast c02 deal going currently

Update added a mini diy c02 reactor to this set up and running diy C02 until I get a gas cylender(probably go with a soda stream bottle and adapter in a few months time until I can afford a 2kg bottle

Reactor is a small pump I got from eBay running into a m&m's minis tube with bottom cut off with the sponge from the filter wedged in there water enters the top of tube ect

Works a treat and is hidden in the rear in end chamber with the return pump (keeps it all looking nice and tidy

Would like to add glosso in this at some point seeming I'm having good success tank started pearling with hour of c02 running(it's a very weak mix so should expect to produce any more c02)

Did you cycle/ check your parameters first?

Carefull if you never worked with CO2 before with just cycling you might gas out your shrimp since there isnt enough plant load to produce the oxygen in the water column.

Tanks been running for a while with a very minor bio load (few snails)

Deffs not my first time playing with c02

Tanks always pearling so I'm not worried about gassing anything

Since upping the light I'm starting to have a bit of algae pop up but it will pass in time anyways

That's not a cycle.

You also forget the ammonia in the soil would have contributed to the cycle aswell

Now you can keep crying over spilt milk or we can get on with the progress

Good luck in your endeavors, but people who ignore advice are the ones who post threads asking for guidance on how to cycle after their fish began to die.

I won't argue, since I obviously am set in knowing your cycle didn't actually happen. Show your test results once you get them done.

Your talking down to me like I haven't had fish at all and that's why i dismiss anything you say

I'm just saying: post your parameters.

Proof over 'skill'.

Also, you do mention it's your first rodeo in nanos. I'm not talking down to you, just being frank.
