Nano Plant List ...

... can we has? Please?

Sort of like the nano fish thread - but with plants that are best suited for nano to micro tanks?

Well okay maybe not as intense as the nanofish list - but just a good place for newbies to have a starting place when it comes to plants that do the best in the smaller tanks?

Or is that just a pointless kind of thread to have? Or does it exist already? lol

So like I would imagine ...

Anubias nana petite

... would be a good suggestion!

Would we want to have two classes?

Class 1: plants with a max height of say 7 inches (no trimming required to reduce height)
Class 2: plants that will require trimming to control height

Hm. Not sure what would be best - but obviously some plants will never need to really worry overmuch about growing 'too tall" to stay in scale or under water, and those that want plants to extend and continue to grow outside of the water wouldn't want to plant ones that will never get higher than like 2-3 inches tall.

Probably anything listed as a foreground candidate would be a good option.

While we're on the subject, exactly what is a nano tank?

Getting back to the hobby and up to speed.

I consider a nano to be 5 or 6 gallons or less but I guess there is always room to go a little higher ans still call it a nano.

I thought it was 30 gallons or less. That's what it usually is in reefs...

The reason I ask is that I see some 10g tanks listed on this subforum. I have a 10g halfmoon tank which I'd never thought of as a nano; it's roughly 16" from the substrate to the light, so some traditional background plants are possible there.

Guess it really blurs the line between nano and standard.

nano could be 30 gals or less. in reefs it can even be stuff below 100gals-its up to the person. for example stuff below 5 gals is considered pico lol.

The problem with that definition is that nano plants could then be virtually everything except jungle vals, some swords, and nymphaea.

IMO nano is anything smaller than (and NOT including) 10 gallons. But there really is no set definition...

I would term a nano to be 8 gallons or less. I consider a 10 gallon to be a regular sized tank.

And I own two 100 gallon tanks - so it's not like I'm not familiar with tanks on the larger end of things, but 10 gallons has been a standard size since I was like in single digits. It wasn't considered tiny then so I just can't see it being considered tiny now.

But that's JMO.

Is there a consensus on < 10g?

If so, who wants to start collating the data?

Any consensus on what a pico tank is? I have a 4g which is 'labeled' as a pico.

Returning to the hobby, for the second third time.

I think at least from a "miniature scale" in regard to plant growth ... for the sake of maybe developing some sort of a classification system, that less than 10 gallon as a nano is a good line to draw.

The reality is, if someone is playing with a 30 gallon - they can call it nano til the cows come home, but they can handle most plants for a while before having to trim them - with a few exceptions - whereas when you are dealing with anything smaller than a 10 gallon, your literal "ceiling" is going to be much much much lower, and trimming less of a demand in terms of space and scale, is my thought.
