Just rescaped this nano tank in my kitchen.

Like the micro grasses but think I'll ditch the staurogyen repens and put it in my 125. Any suggestions for an easy to care for plant with this scape. No Co2 gas yet, maybe never. Dosed excel and micro/ macros in the last build and everything grew fine but incredibly slow. I'm okay with slow. Love some ideas for fish too. Had a school of cpds in here before but they always hid behind the plants, I even used some platies as dither fish to try and coax them out but they weren't having it. Funny thing is when I relocated the cpds to my 125 rainbow fish tank they hang out right in the top middle of the tank, no plants nearby at all. Anyhow leaning towards some pseudomugil invansoffi rainbow fish or maybe a school of rams. Love some input!

Cheers
Mike

Apologies for the sideways picture, tried to fix it but for whatever reason this sight wants this picture to be on it's side. Tilt head to the right to see it.

Really pretty! Reminds me of a desert scape.

Thanks! Reminds me of the walk back to the beach house in Cape Cod. Think I've decided to go with Rams since my LFS stocks them regularly and they don't grow very big.

That sand looks very white and very deep. How do you plan on maintaining it? How big is that tank?

It's only a 10 gallon innovative marine tank. Doubt the display part is a full 10 gallon. The sand isn't as white or as deep as it looks in the pic but it has larger grains than most sand. The seiryu stones are supported by a large rock in the back left corner. The sand has been shored up with little pieces of plastic. In previous tank I've done with all sand they stay clean with light swirl of the sand and a vacuum. As the plant roots grow into the sand they help keep things in place.

This would show off Rams' colors very well. They wouldn't be too flashy for how subtle this is, but they would definitely be showcased.
