New 1.75 Gallon Nano Planted Bowfront

Today I decided to set-up my old Betta tank as a low-tech, nano, planted tank. The tank was set-up using the following items:

1 - 1,75 Gallon Bowfront
1 - 13W 6400K light (on a 9 hour photoperiod)
1 - Hagen Elite Mini filter
Black 3M Quartz sand/Eco Complete mix
1 piece Dragon stone

Currently only Malaysian Trumpet snails to minimize anaerobic sand pockets
Will probably add some micro-rasboras and Painted Fire Red Shrimp

Echinodorus vesuvius
Staurogyne repens
Staurogyne stolonifera

I plan on dosing micros (once a week) and Metricide 14 (as a carbon source) every other day.

Here are some pics as of today !

Thanks for looking.

Best Regards,


Tankful in Vancouver
