My wife's nano

After getting my 20g set up, cycled, stocked and looking good, my wife decided she wanted her own tank so she could get a betta. We used the Fluval Spec V, heater in the pump chamber with a "modified" hose. It's started out with eco-complete on top of a fine sand, dragon stone, dwarf hair grass, anubias nana, water wisteria, Temple compacts, corkscrew Val, golden lloydiella and something that looks cool, but will probably die shortly. Once my HC rebounds from my mistake, I'll fill in the font with that. We picked up a couple guppies to help cycle the tank, but ultimately it'll be betta and some Shrimp.

Changed it up a little bit since it cycled. Got our Betta, upgraded the light and changed the aquascape a bit.

I decided to go with the Finnex Planted+ 24/7, it fits fine, and doesn't even light the liter like I thought it would.

Changed the rocks from Dragon Stone to Seiryu Rock, added a nice piece of spider wood as well.

Went with a crypt, Dwarf Hairgrass, Flame Moss and a Bronze Sword. I don't think the sword is gonna stay though, I'll figure something else out when I see something else I want, lol.

Overall my wife is happy to take ownership of my hard work, and feedings, and upkeep... and money....
