My Second Nano

Started my second nano.
Same as my first one....really simple and cheap. Got all the items from thrift and habitat store. Total cost is less than $10.

Jar from Goodwill $2.50
Air pump, light canister, glass chandelier from Habitat $3.50.

Hola Manolito! How is this tank doing? I like these types of tanks and am keen on finding out what works for other people. Repurposed items make it even more cool!

It is doing very well.

I replace the petrified wood with a stump that I found locally. Tied a few anubias nana and it looks so natural.

I have a few RCS in there and they are breeding very well.

Interesting fact...due to the shape of the jar/bowl, I have never had to scrap the glass at all. The tank been running since May and I replace 1/2 of the water twice a month.

Nice, low maintenance is definitely a bonus!
