Default My tank

Ok, this is my current tank. Had this one running about 2 years. Went through a few minor landscape changes because some plants got too big.
The current version has mostly crypts (forgot which ones already), weeping moss, anubias petite, dwarf hairgrass (japan variety).
Sorry about the glare on the left.

Very peaceful tank. I could lay on the grass and watch the clouds!

a lovely serene setup. i was looking for some nice contrasting fish in the pic but didnt see any. which ones do you have if any? of the top i can visualize a tight school of 50-60 neon tetras just making the perfect composition in your landscape.

Thank you for the comments.

No fish, only shrimp. That's one of the main reasons the tank was going so long. Every time I disturb the tank, I lose some shrimp.

The tank is a 20g long.
ADA amazonia.
Lights are about 2wpg for 10hrs and 3wpg for 8hrs.
CO2 is 2 bubbles a second.

I really like this tank! I'm jealous of your carpeting skills. At first, I thought it was a 55 gal! I think you've done a great job scaling your hardscape to fit the size of this aquarium perfectly. Question, has the DHG been planted in this tank for the full 2years? I've heard that it can be a real PITA to maintain a healthy carpet of this plant.

The DHG has been in there about a year. It's the Japan variety.
I tried HC at first but it wasn't looking how I wanted it.
