1.5g nano

So this is my first attempt at a tiny planted tank. It has been running since Nov 10'.


1.5g deep blue glass tank (12x6x6)

Red Sea nano filter

Azoo palm 7w Mini PC light

Eco complete substrate

Plants:
Anubias nana
Hornwort
java moss

and infested with pond snails. I would like to add a very small fish or cherry shrimp to this tank...advice and comments welcome.

Current Tanks:
20g low light planted since 09
45g reef
5g pico reef since '13

I found it at Burtons Total Pet here in PA. It is actually a betta tank which included a divider. I just took it out. And yes, the java moss looks not so hot. I went on vacation for 2 weeks and forgot to put the light on a timer. I normally just flick the switch manually.

I'd say no to any fish but shrimps should do ok aslong as the temperature doesn't swing much at night.
