Hi all

This is my 3gallon nano that i had set up a few years ago but stripped it down after it turning into a mess when i went on holiday.

Thought it was about time i set it back up again but proply and make it look alot nicer.

Tank - 16inch X 8inch X 8inch
Substrate - JBL Aquabasis plus
Gravel - 3mm natural gravel
Lighting - 60W desk lamp (might upgrade to something better soon)
Plants - non yet but will be putting HC in there and Rotala wallachii.
Shrimp - Cherrys
C02 - will be added when i can be botherd to make 1 lol

1cm (about) of Aquabasis added then flattened out.




1cm (about) of Gravel added ontop of the aquabasis


Tank filled with water


Looks abit crap at the moment but hopefully it will come on well.

What do you think?

Thanks.
Nick.

maybe another non-stemmed green plant should be in there to contrast with the rotala? not sure what kind of layout you would want to do so I don't know what kind of green plant would be best...

was think of a the Rotala wallachii being in the top right corner and then HC growing in the foreground and yeah maybe some other plant to take the back left and along the back.

plants added to the tank HC and Rotala wallachii for the moment i have a few other plants floating in there waiting to be sold and i have some riccia sat in there waiting for my bog wood to leek its stain before i put it in my 20gallon tank.

the HC is growing good but i think im starting to get a hair algae prob :mad:

will be making a DIY C02 soon after i get a diffuser.

also will be adding a black background.

and comments on improving this tank?

Rich substrate, water column ferts, high light, lots of co2, mine is almost a carpet after a month of planting.
