Here's a picture of my 5 Gallon "office" nano tank. Its an eclipse 5 corner tank with stock light. Ada amazonia soil, manzanita wood and filter sand.



Elatine triandra, Hygrophila polysperma 'Ceylon', Limnophila aromatica, Hottonia palustris, xmass moss.

Ember tetras, Corydoras pygmaeus, ottos, and a few cherry shimp.

Let me know what you think

Cheers, Whitepine

I like the setup, I can't believe you got the E. triandra to survive in that lighting. Do you use CO2?

I was just gonna comment on the ET too! I couldn't grow that stuff if my life depended on it!

Very nice little tank whitepine....I would make a suggestion to replace the Hygro with something smaller/finer leaved.

No Co2, I do plan on changing out the hygro. I think the stock light is a 15 watt screw in cf. The tank has been up and running about 2 months. I wasn't sure if a lot of the plants would make it.... but most seem to be doing fine.

Cheers, Whitepine
