55 is no nano

But.... 'nano' plants in a 55 would look pretty cool. Depends on lights/CO2/Ferts tho

I assume you mean a 55g with nano fish.

There's a lot to work with. S. Repens, Drawf rotala, dwarf hair grass, dwarf baby tears, anubias petite, any moss, glosso, dwarf four leaf clover... the list goes on and on. Find plants with smaller leaves really and you're good to go. There's tons out there. I think there is even a nano plant list around the forum somewhere

Alternanthera reineckii 'mini'
Rotala indica (bonsai)
Staurogyne repens
HC 'cuba'
Micranthemum 'Monte Carlo'
Dwarf hair grass
Crypt parva
Crypt lutea 'hobbit'
Pogostemon helferi
Bacopa sp. 'compact'
Blyxa japonica
Littorella uniflora
Anubias nana
Bucephalandra
Echinodorus tenellus
Lobelia cardinalis


Should be a starting place at least

Best? Some will do better then others based on temperature, light, water conditions, substrate, ammount of care required and so on.

But to answer your question: Java Fern.
