Native Nano

I've been thinking about setting up a native nano. Anybody have any suggestions for stocking?

Spike rush, bacopa minora, ludwigia repens on plants & heterandria formosa (least killie) for fish livestock & ramshorn snails or pondsnail finished off with ghost shrimp. Tada! Very Native.

You can also do Pygmy Sunfish species.

I like all the plants, thanks. I'm definitely looking for fish though. Inverts will be in there but I'd rather fish to shrimp.

How big is your tank?

I think a nano (under 10 gallons) is too small for darters, which are not tiny fish. They need a lot of ground space.

Banded and bluefin killifish could be good options for a nano, as well as Pygmy sunfish.

I wouldn't recommend native minnows or dace for a nano because they are active schoolers that need space to swim.

I currently keep two types of darters, shiners, dace, minnows and one banded killifish.

Good luck!
