4G nano NOW WITH NEW PICS

Hey everyone,

Here is my latest tank, i have two others. a 20G and a 30g at work.
New to the whole nano planted thing so here goes, latest pic as of tonyt been running for 3 weeks. and been planted and fish stocked for 1 week.

Fish: 6 white Cloud mountain minnows.

Plants: Hygrophila, Hemianthus, pnny wort green and some java moss and floaters

Just started to inject DIY co2 tonyt. will see if that increases Hemianthus growth. runnning a aquaclear HOB filter and 15W of flourescent light soon to be 30W when i get my light fixture made.

Comments and critique welcome

merk1_99, No it isnt i dont think, im in Australia and it is called a splish and splash tank cheap one. im thinking about dee rimming it but still not sure.

crimsonbull57, No not planning to add any shrimp they are hard to find here in aus, not sure why tho. May add 1 or 2 small otos not sure yet.

Im hoping that the Hemianthus will start to grow along the bottom i will keep trimming and see how it goes.

What a nice, simple natural looking setup. I love the tiny little plants you have on the bottom.

I also have the same tank, but 5gal I think. I wouldnt be too keen on de-rimming it though, especially if you have the filter hanging off the top.

btw... do you know if the tank is plastic or glass? When I bought it I was told that it was glass, but it feels alot lighter, and more like some sort of perspex (or however you spell it).

Thanks, i buggered up it is really HM but it still looks good.

The dslr should help give a perspective of what it really looks like
