advice for a nano tank
Have an old ~2 gal hex tank (7.5" wide, 9.5" tall) sitting around and decided to make a desk top aquarium for work. Planning on keeping CPO's and orange throated phanchax as the fuana. As far as the flora I am using plants I already have in an old tank which are.
X mas moss
Anubias Barteri "petite"
Maybe Crtyp. Wendtii if it will fit.
I am using cholla wood in the back ground to anchor the java ferns and Anubias along with a small rock and mopani driftwood I have laying around.
My questions are:
Would the Java ferns make a good background plant for a tank this size?
I have 2 options for substrate, I have eco complete gravel and flourite. Should I bother with the flourite if I don't put the crypts in and just use epiphytic plants? Will that just ultimately lead to algae blooms.
I am not the most technology savvy person in the world but if I can figure it out I will post some pics of the process. Any comments in general would be most appreciated, thanks.
