Randy's "HMN" journal

*note "HMN"= hotel made nano
*https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/pl...-page-4-a.html
*Mine was built in my living room

So as you can see the tank is 12"x10"x10". ~5.19 gallons


Yes it is going into my bedroom.
The ADA Aquasoil is a must for this nano!!


The branch will be on the right side of the final layout, and the nano co2 diffuser will be pumping my diy co2 into the tank.

Notice my nice set of sand levelers


Okay so the top hill will be planted with HC and the front also!! The back corners will have Dwarf Hairgrass.

Here you can see the plants planted, emersed for faster growth


And finally the branch with Taiwan moss tied with sewing thread, Its in my 10 gallon for the time being

All of the planting was done today, so after the next few weeks, an update will be added!!

The rock looks too big IMO but its nice. The ram will need a bigger tank too just to let you know. Nice growth.

Have to agree with James, the rock is way to large. And ther ram will not be happy for long.

You should try some Marsilea type ground cover. This plant will not grow vertically but will grow on runners along the substrate. I do happen to have some FS at the following link along with other plants.

I also have some small pieces of driftwood and some small chuncks of petrified wood that would be great for a Nano tank.
