These are 2 of my Fluval nanos set up about a month ago for my twins' bday who just turned 4. Tanks are both cycled and are just settling in. Both were stocked this week after the cycle was complete. Plants were all sourced from the nice folks on TPT..shout out to all that I got plants for.. Thanks a ton guys..
Spec III- low tech -
Stock lights + filter.
Intank,llc media baskets with fluval biomedia, filter foam, nitrite/ammonia reducer foam, and purigen.
Intank plastic skimmer.
Hagen 50w heater in the pump compartment.
A couple of 1/4" holes made in the Pump hose to keep the pump compartment topped off.
Black feather rocks- looks like a lighter variant of black volcanic rock- sourced from the local landscaping place.
Black petco sand.
Lava rock filled pantyhose to give height in the back.
Couple small manzanita branches.
Trident java fern in the back- top of the triangle.
Anubias nana petite glued on small pcs of lava rock in between the lace rocks as mid ground.
Multiple mosses glued onto the rocks.
Beautiful boy koi betta, named Aquaman. (He completes Justice league in our house).

So far, Aquaman just investigates the shrimp, no casualties as yet. Other than that, he is so full of personality. Betta's make great fishy pets- rival certain cichlids for spunk...
