Like this little tank a bunch, I've got one set up right now that looks very similar actually! Cept i've been fighting brown algae like crazy.... FYI your betta might make a meal of your cherries, he did with my three ghost shrimps.

Thanks. My Betta rarely chases the shrimp nowadays.

Cleaned some algae off the glass.

Thanks Matt!

Here is the current status of the emersed section. It was mostly dead until a couple weeks ago when the temperature finally dropped. It's a mix of Willow moss, HC, and MP. One thing to note is that Willow moss becomes very compact when grown emersed, giving it an attractive appearance.

I really love this tank. I am actually going to do one the same size, but I am thinking of having some more shrimp in mine. I work with a guy who is getting some cool ones flown in this week, and is going to breed them. I will put up a thread as soon as I start to set it up. Any suggestions on doing a nano?

Carpet has grown in nicely. Looks like you got rid of the slope on the substrate.

Thank you.

I wish you luck with the tank. IME, small tanks are a lot of fun and are easy to care for. That reminds me, I should add a few more RCS now that there is plenty of cover for them to hide in.

As for suggestions, using a scape that makes the tank seem bigger than it is can be rewarding if done correctly. Also, have a carpet plant that doesn't need to be trimmed is a good time saver. HG Belem seems like a good candidate, as is mini micro sword.

Thanks. The slope is still there and is the same: ~3" on the left to ~1.25" on the right.

All the algae is just spot algae on the glass. I have no idea how to scrape it off with the plants in the way.
