zen nano 4 gal

I got this as a early fathers day gift from the wife , a Aquatop Zen Nano 4 gallon tank and stand . Plans are not sure at the moment I know will have some crypts and some type of moss , hardscape will be manzinite and lava rocks . For the monent till I get plants it will sit like this, with this little stump it might be used . The light is led and very bright, filter makes no sound love it .

Wasn't digging the first scape so tried this one much happier

Plants are
Crypt undulata
Hygropbila pinnatifida
Anubis petite

Will be addinng
Crypt wendtii green
And some moss
Maybe a carpet plant need advice on that

Lighting is a fluval compact floecent

maybe cherrie shrimp or betta or white cloud minos

Thats starting to look really nice! not too sure on the rocks you used for the anubias, it hides the awesome lava rock. you could try tying the anubias onto the wood ( you could make it look like a tree https://www.plantedtank.net/forums/sh...d.php?t=203338), a Glosso carpet against the lava rock would be a great contrast and it would stay low under the bright light making the lava rock visible.
