Im not quite sure this qualifies as a nano tank. Tank looks good though.

Very well scaped tank. Didn't know Gouramis were the same species as Angels . You gonna get some schoolers for the tank? Although the Angels may make that a bit difficult.

Looks great, I would love to see how it looks if you brought the large rock on the left closer to the far left driftwood almost dead center of the tank (switch places with stargrass).

Thank you guys.

I edited the latin name of gourami ...and yes, I also think to add new fish mates to get nice harmony.
How about if I add another 3 angelfish, I supose that I'll not find the same size, in this case do you think will fight a long while eatch other?

I also like the ideea to switch the stone place with the stargrass.

Very nice tank!

Have you succumbed to the pleasure of Multiple Tank Syndrome? I feel your pain!

Hi, now I come to you with a picture of the setup at one week distance.
The wood is darker now and Iím thinking to cover it with some moss.
I also need to trim the rotala to make it bushy
