2.5g nano journal

i took a break from the hobby more than half a year ago. now im just getting back and want to stay small. anyways here is my current project.

tank: 2.5gallon
filter: aquaclear mini
co2: diy + hagen ladder diffuser
substrate: flourite
lighting: 30watt CF screw-in. 1920lumens, 6400K
decor: glossos + others undecided
fish: undecided

ready to plant glossos:

filling tank


placed at designated spot


now i just wait to see how the glossos works out. going to hook up the co2 now.


future plans:

looks good . Nanos are always fun to make cause it isn't that expensive. Just curious but could you tell me the name of the light bulb because i'm looking for a 30w daylight pc bulb also and could never find one at 30w. Do you think they are available in the states?

here's a small update, great growth. the runners started out sticking out of hte gravel, but the new runners stick right to the gravel. i havent had the time to shove everything in the gravel to make a flat carpet yet.

im going to also add some rocks soon.

hey
i am interested in seeing how your glosso flourishs
because i recently grew a glosso lawn in my 30 gallon
but it seemed to be that i did not have enough substrate
and the roots were not able to go down deep enough and
the glosso started to yellow and melt away...so keep this updated
