New 1.5G Amano-esque

New tank I just started a few weeks ago. This is my first foray into a planted nano tank.

Just some java moss and an Endler to get the cycle started.
No CO2...yet.

Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

Looks nice, what filter is that? It looks like the one I have.

Does amano-esque mean shrimp are going in there? If so you may want to put a sponge or tights over the intake for that filter. Amanos are probably too big to get sucked up, but I wouldn't risk it.

Other than that looks good. I've been wanting to get a super-nano going, just waiting for the funds. :)
I like that tall rock. the little smooth rock in the front right corner looks a little out of place though...
Thanks for the suggestions!!

Tdouglass25: The filter is a Whisper 3i from an old tank. I have a red sea nano on order from PetCo (they're taking forever). What I meant by Amano-esque was the style I was going for was the tanks that Takashi Amano designs. I'll probably put something over the intake of the Red Sea Nano when I get it in.

GitMoe: I saw that rock at my LFS and fell in love with it. I found some other rocks that looked like smaller versions for a few more decorations. I wanted to offset the harshness of the jagged black rocks with a smoother, lighter colored one. I'll take it out and post pics tonight to see what it looks like without. I could put the smaller rock on the left hand side leaning up against the bigger one where the smooth one was. Thoughts?

I know I have a wicked thread algae problem right now, but it's a new tank and my param's aren't accurate yet.
Love the rock! Wish it was a little more green though. Other than that, looks great!
Here's the tank without that smooth rock in the front corner.


Also, Got my RedSea Nano filter in. Setup was a breeze, and am hoping that increased water movement can get some of that algae out of there. I will probably head to the LFS soon to pick up a snail or two. It's amazing how something so small can capture someone's attention for so long. Enjoying the comments! Thanks for y'all's help!
