Here's my 5g nano tank that i've started a couple months ago. It keeps me sane at work now ;-)
I'm trying to get an HC carpet and it's finally taking off after a month of slow growth. I guess it's probably due to the emmersed to submersed transition. Other plants are growing really fast and these plants suck nutrients like crazy ;-)
I just ordered some aquafilters to automate the dosing since I'm only at work 5 days a week. Having access to some power relays is really cool since I can write a program to get the pumps to dose in small dosage.
By the way, the zoomed is a fabulous filter.. i love this thing. Quiet like a mouse. Also the haggen ladder is so cool,, with the tiny bubbles climbing up as it diffuse.
Here are the specs:
5g acrylic (modified eclipse 5g)
filter: ZooMed 501 cannister
substrate: regular gravel
Ferts: Seachem line (N,P,K, flourish comp., Iron) + excel daily
Light: Catalina 24W (8 hrs)
CO2: DIY 2ltr w/hagen ladder.
Hygro Polysperma (green)
Anubia nana petite
erio cinereum (newly added)
Ghost Shrim (4)
Guppy (1 adult, 20 fry ;-)
few friendly snails
And here are some pics of the tank using my crappy point&shoot camera. Forgive the pic quality...
