New set up with pics

I have been in the salt water realm for about ten years now but decided to take a stab at fresh again. I set up a nano i had sitting around,

OK here goes: 26 gallon nano (forgot what brand)
32 watts pc, 50/50 bulb for now(all I had it was a fuge light)
2 submersible filters in the rear sump and a small maxijet
as a return.

3 anubias plants, O nitrate, trites, ammonia. Hard water but I do have an ro system if needed. 6 white clouds and a betta. What do you guys think, the flow isn't that bad and the betta doesn't seem to struggle and the white clouds are mating like crazy they look awesome. Cant turn the other pic right side up but if you cock your head it looks right, lol. Sorry guys.

26gallons? does that really qualify as a nano?

it is IMPOSSIBLE to find 1 person who regrets going pressurized

if you do it right, you can spend a lot of money in this hobby...of course, if you do it wrong - you'll spend A LOT more

LOL. You won't regret it.

Not a bad thing, but you can definitely tell that you keep reef tanks as well by looking at your 26g planted. Mainly from the rocks.

Looks good so far... just needs more plants!

By the way, love your username.
