2.5 gallon nano, before and after; three months

I found a pic of my nano sitting in a folder on my desktop that was taken in early March. I can't believe that it hasn't even been three months since these two pictures have been taken. It's amazing what a little CO2 and fertilizers can do...

Before:


After:


My next step is to move the filter over to the left side (I'll need to cut a new acrylic pane) and get some black latex paint on the back of the tank. The old pic had a piece of black construction paper which fell apart.

I'm also considering ripping out the microsword since it's the only thing that hasn't grown.

Looking good. The carpet plant, whether it's HC or HM I can't tell, has grown really well. Once it has grown in fully the tank will look great. If you're going to swap out the microsword, you might consider hairgrass. It's kind of a cliche nano plant but it's good none the less.
