Hi guys,

I am about to set up my nano planted tank (Fluval spec V). At the moment I only have the substrate in (Seachem Flourite black sand) and I am completing a fishless cycling. I am planning to keep the light the tank came with for now and supplement co2 using the Tropica nano system.

I have found a video of a tank I really like (link and screenshot below). Of course this is a large tank and I'm not sure if these plants are suitable for a nano but I quite like the layout.

Could you please help me identifying the plants in this tank?

Thank you so much for your help!

Hmm can't say that I can recognize them all given my not to grand plant knowledge and the lower quality of the video but it looks like to me that the plants in the back are jungle val, the ones at the very front that are carpeting the tank appear to be dwarf baby tears and I could be wrong on this but the more fine grass like plant that is wedged between the rocks looks to be dwarf hair grass

The round flat leafed plant I would guess is Hydrocotyle triparta Japan.

The small bunches in the foreground kind of look like pogostemon helferi but can't be sure.
