Three 2.5gal High-Tech Tanks

Suppose I should've put my journal here in the Nano section but here's a link:

Started all three a couple weeks ago and they're doing quite well.

Wow, I love Iwagumis. I wish my 2.5 could look that good (check my sig )

My favorite is the UG tank.

Thanks!

I've followed your tank journals for quite some time and they look great.

Think the trick to making tiny, cheap tanks like this look decent is to overdo it with the plants, as I have done, and use over-sized rock.

I can't say that any of mine are truly Iwagumi but definitely Iwagumi-inspired. Would be a lot easier in a tank about twice this size.
