1 gallon update, with pictures!

Here's a tank I've been working on it is a 1.3g with hc, ug, nlf, some kind of stem, and petite anubias. The sides look a bit empty I know, I'm still trying to figure out what to put there and to see if the ug will fill in the sides a little. Anyways, suggestions or comments are appreciated. Thanks!

That's a cute little tank. I love the 'stump' look, I'm a huge fan of driftwood and HC together.

that is a nice scape on such a little tank! the stem almost looks like sunset hygro but it's hard to see.. what kind of filtration does it have? what temp is the water? i think this would make a nice home for a small group of shrimp, prob around 10

4 * 8 * 15 * 16 * 23 * 42

Great shaped driftwood. I'd add some anubias somewhere

Thanks for the comments guys!
JennaH: The temp is room temp, probably around 60 at this time of year, the filter is a red sea nano filter. Ive been waiting on shrimp until i can figure out a better way to feed co2 into the filter. a problem i had before on this tank was that with a sponge inlet the co2 tube creates enough space for shrimp to slip in. kind of a gross result from that, anyways hopefully i will get some soon.

dacrax07: I have a petite anubias wedged in on the right side for now, i am still figuring out a better place to put it.

with such a small tank i would think excel would be an easy carbon source over running co2

Heres a picture of the little enclosure I made. Inside the hood is a 14w bulb, I used to use a 28w one but that just grew algae too fast if things got out of balance. Anyways the small bulb is good for growing hc and ug grows really well even when shaded (on the right side)

I love that driftwood. Perfect size for your tank (and mine *hint* *hint*).

That's very impressive. I like that tank, nice quality and thick glass. Did you make it yourself, or have it custom made? What are its dimensions?
