Desk Tank-- Updated Nov. 1

I figure a new tank can go on a new thread?



8"w, 6t and 6d, back wall is white acrylic.
Using the nano filter as you can see.
Florabase is still the nutrient substrate used for the plants.

Plants:
Marsilea
Anubias nana
pomatagetan gayi
ludwigia (arcuata probably . . .)

Fauna:
Emerald Eye Rasbora
Amano Shrimp

It's turned out pretty good even with how dominant the anubias is. Some other shots:







Enjoy everyone!

BTW-- the old tank is no longer display use, but I still have it running. The cherry shrimp had dropped some eggs, and I can't give up a nice nursery and all the cute new baby shrimp. >.<

BigB-- yeah the anubias nana is a plant that looks attractive in almost any 'scape. Though it's big for this tank, it's worked out really well just the same. Pomatagetan is growing sideways and accents the anubias nicely as a result.

turtlehead-- he should be easy to find on aquabid

I love it! I wish I could have one too, but I have way too much stuff on mine.

You're so lucky.

There's always room for 1 more . . . !

BTW-- this tank is coming along very nicely.

I'm seeing the fastest ludwigia growth I've ever gotten in my whole hobby career. I left for the weekend, and when I came back it has all grown an inch! That doesn't seem like much compared to the way hygros grow in larger tanks, but in a small tank, it's really noticable.

Also, very strange, the pomatgetans which I normally consider a "tall" plant, are growing sideways! it's very cool. It's creeping it's way to the right, filling out the mid ground and putting orange highlights in as it moves into the fore-ground. Very cool. Updated shots soon.
