Hey guys, here's my nano tank - a 5 gallon freshwater I've entitled "The Great Snail of Tranquility". Hopefully you see why. I constructed the driftwood feature by gluing together two pieces of driftwood with aquarium sealant and then gluing that to the rock.
I've been getting this up and going for about 3 months now. Substrate is a mix of Mineralized Top Soil and Organic Potting Mix. I've got Dwarf Sag, Dwarf Hairgrass, Crypts and Hydrocotyle in there, plus a little Taiwan moss.
It's all cycled up now, full of pond snails (which I don't mind, looking forward to getting an Assassin snail when I get too many) and Malaysian Trumpet Snails (which I added to stir my substrate cause I keep getting gas bubble buildup). I've also got some a bunch of tiny organisms in there that I've seen: nematode worms, seed shrimp and hydras.
I am planning a small school of Celestial Pearl Danios, getting them next week. After that, I'd eventually like to add some shrimp.
Had some issues with my plants, so I'm still trying to get a hold on getting them enough nutrients. Also, my lighting was too low, so I upgraded that and now I'm getting runners on my hairgrass! I'd like to add some marsilea minutia at some point too, and red root floaters.
I'm learning videography for my job, so I've got some video of my tank that I'll post at some point once I edit some scenes together. Will probably wait until I get my fish, so within a couple weeks. I'll post updates! Hope you guys like it!
