Nano Update

2 X 4.3 gal cubes



4 gal finnex


I am going to cut some backgrounds for them later today. Not the greatest pics, but oh well. I am happy because the two cubes just went through a 3 day blackout to remove algae with great results! Even Thai is happier..see him in the corner? He's building a nest

That last pic was especially awesome - great job in such a small tank. I'd personally throw some reds in the back left corner and maybe a little on the right hand foreground or midground... but that's just me.

The back left corner & front are plants that can be red, but with this lighting they are just a light color. Thanks everyone for the compliments and comments.

HC grows tall when there is a sign that there is not enough light

I don't get it, it has 48 wts of T-5's.
How much more could you put over a 10" cube? Maybe because it started out as a potted plant, and I had only 13 wts of T-5's over it at first.

Do you mean the one going straight upward with the bumpy leaves? It is crinum calimistratum.If you mean the one hanging downward, it is potamogeton gayi. But seriously, do you ever make a post that doesn't have a negative? Is there some standard that denotes my HC has to be short? I think it looks cool..like bushes.So it's different..so shoot me.

Thanks for the nice compliments everyone.

its the crinum, thanks.
almost every one of them, yes. for me not to say anything but "good" means that it is absolutely perfect (or the closest thing to it if you dont believe in perfection), which is rare. its longer then usual. i didnt mean to offend you. sorry, grow it as long as you want, its YOUR tank, do what YOU like. im just throwing out suggestions.
