Update on the 3g Picotope nano

Hey folks - never really did a made a full thread for this little tank, so here's a quick update. I let this tank get very overgrown for a few months. Ended up tossing out about 2lbs in moss! Did a big re-scape and only kept the anubias and java fern. On to the pics, enjoy!

- 3g Picotope
- Zoo Med 501 canister filter
- Hampton Bay desk lamp (27w, 6500k, PC)

& one Halfmoon betta

Thanks folks! The substrate is plain 12# mesh sand with some original colored Fluorite sprinkled on top for some color. The plants are anubias and java fern

Hey Jose,
Great looking tank. I like the driftwood. What type is it? where do you get them?

Thanks Don. The wood is manzanita, collected locally in the area. You'll find a ton of it once you get to higher elevations. I usually drive along Highway 4. You'll also see it along the 50 and 80. At about 5000ft is where I always see the really nice aged manzanita, like this stuff I collected:
