Not really! It still looks like a larger tank in the background! Maybe due to the shaded area between the can and tank...well done!

LOL, my bad and your absolutely right. You can't tell the distance between the Guinness and the tank even though it's butted right up against it

Everything going along nicely. I see new leaves on the buce, parva, pellia and of course the moss. I actually added some dwarf hairgrass (one of the taller varieties) beyond the wood. There is a small space that I think it might grow in, so want to see what that looks like.

Your mini pellia looks amazing. Where did you get it from? Also how did you attach it to the wood?

Thanks, pretty sure I got it from an ebay vendor. Everything is attached with an cyanoacrylate glue.

Made a few changes to this massive tank. Took out the moss and replaced with more mini pellia. Also planted some tall hairgrass in the back that's starting to come in behind the wood.

Looks great! I really does look like a much bigger tank than it is. I imagine some shrimp in there will really shrink the perceived size.

Thanks, yeah I'll be dropping some shrimp in there soon so the scale will be more obvious, unless I stick to baby shrimp and remove them before they get too big

Thanks, I actually have a mini set of lily pipes, but I think my filter would be way to strong, plus I'd have to drill through the desk its on. That's the problem with nanos unless you get an all-in-one setup.

Couple of new pics i took during and after a water change Tanks gets about a 70% change once a week and is dosed with normal EI dosing. The crypt parva in the inert black sand is doing great. For a slow grower the leaves are clean and fresh. No melting or die back from the original tissue culture.

Hardest part of this tank is keeping the mini pellia firmly attached to the wood as it grows outward pretty thick. If you look closely you can see some of the hairgrass (parvula) in the back growing out of the tank.
