3.7 gallon AIO Nano Planted Tank
I'm getting my feet wet again after a five year absence of keeping aquatic pets. I began with goldfish purchased from a local Bait Shop when I was 8 years old. I quickly outgrew these fish and set up a 29 gallon community tank. I also kept multiple Betta tanks, and even had some success with breeding them. At the age of 14, I set up my first saltwater tank. By the age of 16 this evolved into a full fledge reef tank. I set up an 18 gallon ADA aquarium as a nano reef. I still have this tank, and will be setting it up soon as I've already caught fish fever and want to go bigger.
Enough of my past, here's the details of my current setup:
3.7 Gallon Imagitarium Pro AIO Nano Tank
11” x 11” x 11”
Aqua One 40 gph pump
Finnex FugeRay Planted+ LED Clip Light
Aqueon Submersible Aquarium Heater 10 watt
Fluval Stratum Planted Aquarium Substrate
Seachem Flourish Root Tabs
Crushed Coral (to raise hardness)
Java moss (Vesicularia dubyana)
Micro sword (Lilaeopsis brasiliensis)
Sword Plant (Echinodorus sp.)
Moss Ball (Chladophora aegagropila)
2 Anubias nana “petite”
Dwarf Sagittaria (Sagittaria subulata)
Moneywort (Bacopa monnieri)
Banana Plant (Nymphoides aquatica)
1 Female Guppy (Poecilia reticulata)
5 Amano Shrimp (Caridina multidentata)
4 Neon Tetras (Paracheirodon innesi)
2 Nerite Snails (Zebra and Tiger Neritina natalensis, N. semiconica)
The tank has been set up about a month now, and replanted several times. I'm just now happy with the way I have it planted now. I purchased the guppy to help get me through the cycle (poor practice, please don't grill me fish police). She is currently pregnant and going to a new home tomorrow before she gives birth. After I get rid of her, I plan to relocate the Amano shrimp to another tank and purchase a small group of Red Cherry Shrimp for my tank. After my sandbed matures, I plan to purchase a Dainty Corydoras (Corydoras habrosus) and this will be the end of my stocking for this tank.
I will post a more current FTS tomorrow after I do a water change.
So guys, let me know what you think! I am completely opening myself up to comments, suggestions, and critiques.
