2.5g "Elder Forest" Tank
So, today I finally settled on a theme for my 2.5g I currently have it planted with Laterite and sand, however I plan on adding some "Black Fine Riverbed Sand" by Geosystem. The sand I'm using right now is a khaki color, so it all works out to a medium brown.
Currently planted with Fissidens Fontanus, Sagittaria Subulata and Cryptocoryne Beckettii
I think i'll end up using some Java or Taiwan moss on flat slate or other rough stone on the bottom to provide a bit of a carpet.
The tank is also cycled (believe it or not) recieving 30% water changes weekly.
The plan, in the end, is to make a nice wooden stand to hold the tank, as well as making a wooden canopy to hold the PC desk lamp that is lighting the tank. The end goal there is to make a whole tank setup that looks like a nice piece of cabinetry that disguises the light, ballast and air pump for the filter (whisper 3i).
While yes, a canister filter would rock, I don't have the extra couple hundred kicking around to just up and buy one. nor could I find a suitable filter for a tank this small.
Any thoughts on other nano plants that would be suitable?
