Looks great bro.

With your current setup/schedule, these plants should do very well in here. Can't wait to see all those plants explode. The mini microswords will be the slowest grower of the bunch.

That crypt looks good in your tank .

I have to catch up now.
Another nice looking shrimp set up.

I will have to steal another one of your ideas and get that little glass orb.
I've ordered from the Germany store before that carries these.

Where can I get those mesh squares you have?

Thanks guys.

Kazuya, I also got my square tiles from Mordalpus...he had some listed on the SnS a while back. Don't know if he has some more.

My plants are from the Speedie408 collection.

And what's it called? Is there a name for that?

I like the modern theme. I hope you grow that nurii out nice and big.

Can I ask about fert dosing? Curious as how you came up with that routine.

Lol...that is a very non-scientific dosing schedule. It is the liquid ferts I have on hand. I have some dry stuff that someone gave me but that's a bit more complicated and less precise trying to dry dose into a nano.

What I usually do in a high-tech planted is to dose Flourish until I see GDA. Then I'll clean the glass and then dail back the Flourish until I do not get anymore GDA and my plants still pearl.

Then I usually have to find a new balance point when I do a hard trim of the carpet. Well...that was how I ran my last 2.5g nano....works well until I get lazy with the ferts then all Hell breaks loose..

I've learned with experience that I don't need or want maximum growth with my plants. I actually prefer slow to medium healthy growth. So I'm not aiming for maximum CO2 concentrations, max ferts...etc...


Got any recommendations Booger?

What I really wanted to do with this tank was to get some of these and bury 1/2 of it in the substrate for different sections and keep all the different plants compartmentalized. Maybe when the plants establish a bit I'll redo the look to give it more vertical elements.

The tank is looking good. I just started a high tech 12*12 mr aqua today. My goal is also to keep some higher grade crs in my tank as well. BTW the orb is cool, if I got my hands on some I would stick them to my bathroom mirror so I could look at something nice besides my face every morning LOL. Good luck with the project.
