This is my sons 12 gallon nano cube. The plants have really taken off. Thought I'd show a before trim picture. It's a jungle in there. He's only three, so I'm the care taker of it, but all the kids love it. It's pretty low maintence.
His room has a kind of tropical/tiki themed room with organic green walls and leaf murals and bamboo accents. So this green box looks great in there.
Lighting: 2x24 watts compact flour. One bulb is 5700k and one is 10,000k bulbs.
Red Sea Co2 with a little glass nano diffuser(use red star champagne yeast - much betta than the bakers yeast)
I do have some wood that the java ferns are attached too. These are pretty plain pieces I picked up from a local creek and attached slate too. Still looking for a more decorative piece of wood with some curves.
Change 50% water every couple weeks.
Very light ferts. I dose a little on water changes. Maybe 1/4 teaspoon of KNO3 and 1/16th teaspoon of KH2PO4. Don't have any traces that I add.
It's been setup for about four months. Let me know if you have anymore questions.
You're one of the only other people I've known to keep Danio Choprai - I have 5 in my 110 and I love them! I've never seen a more hyperactive fish, they are constantly zooming around. Impossible to photograph!
Your nano tank is lovely, and your son is lucky to have it in his bedroom!
