Planted pictures:

I apologize for the size of the photographs. I'm still trying to figure out the resizing thing.

Also- the large rock on top of the driftwood is meant to keep the wood down temporarily. It is not part of the aquascape. Unfortunately the wood was not saturated enough to stay down when I scaped last night.

Nice wood!

Do you have any closeups? Are you using any of the plants you got from me in there?

Looking good. I like the small rocks around the driftwood. Oh and if you get the black CO2 tubing it will blend in and give a very clean look to the tank.

James From Cali Thanks, me too.

WingsdlcYes there are some of your plants in there ( Marsilea, riccia, crypts)). I still have a ton of left overs that I will be posting on S&S soon. BTW- any tips on planting that Marsilea, it was hands down the hardest plant to get to stay in the substrate I have every dealt with. Many parts of it are still half planted.

sfcallen Actually those are riccia rocks ala Amano style. I thought I would try the riccia rocks that create a hedge around the transition area.

I am going to put micro chain sword in where the HC is on the first nano. Again this is a totally different scape when there isn't a 5 pound rock smack dab on top of the driftwood smashing everything into the substrate.

Here are some better shots:

Badcopnofishtank,
What I have found to work best with the 4-LC is to cut it down to smaller pieces. Then down worry about putting gravel over the runner. It will grow through and above the gravel. Give this plant some time and it will take over your tank!

Best of luck. Let me know if you have other questions on the plants.

Wingsdlc Thank you! I will replant it in a day or two. I am trying to get my hands on some E Tenellus for the foreground, as I don't like the HC theme in this tank. I also was considering adding some rocks under the "Stump" in order to give it a "root over rock" look.

Tanks look really good, they make me realize my 10g tank is way too overstuffed! Maybe a bigger shot of the pair?

I think all the way to 17-18 gallons according to AGA standards are considered "nano" tanks.

I like the size due to economy, aquascaping ability and conveinance of easy replacement if one breaks or leaks.

typically- I enjoyed finding the wood I have access to manzanita and nice juniper. I have leftovers that I may be selling soon.

I am in the process of gathering some stones for under the "stump" I am not happy with the crypts their it looks too plain.
