Marimo's STB nano tank

This is a custom made rimless nano with the same dimensions as the ADA Mini M. the tank won't be set up for a while until I move some of my tanks around to make room. Here is my inspiration for this tank. From the ADA gallery.

its a very simple scape.
here are some pics of my tank.

Im using ADA forest sand Branco and Seiryu stone.


another option

and another

the back will have ADA aquasoil for the stem plants no heater and a Tom rapids clear hob filter or eheim 2213. i don't plan to use moss cuz it gets messy instead I may use fissidens. So tell me what you think

Defintely the last one.. two reasons.. the dead-tree look and the isolated stons at the front right. Very interesting arrangement.

The second-to-last could also be interesting - I like the right-hand side but the centre doen't look right to me.

I personally like the second one the best. I love the angle of the driftwood and how the rocks are set up.

Im thinking of growing three different types of rotalas in three small transparent cups filled with aquasoil. Surround the cups with stones and some with anubia nana petite to cover up the cups. That way maintenance on the sand and tank will be super easy. I will also be able to move plants around and try different ones. It would be a an easy way to take the tank around to local fish stores to promote SCAPE. Hows that sound.

Personally, I prefer the second scape. And I really love your seiryu stone.

The cups with aquasoil sounds like an interesting idea. Have you done that before with success?

No but my LFS sells their plants out of clay pots with rock wool. I would like to have the option of moving plants around to see where they look best. Maybe I should just leave them in the pots, but the red clay color may be visible.

Ok this partially set up. Im using ADA Branco sand and the plants are in little 3oz medicine cups. I put some aquasoil in them and planted some Rotala macandra, Rotala Vietnam, Rotala sp. colorata, some unknown plant and anubias nana petite. Im bad at taking pics but here ya go.




Still need to move things around some more.
