Default Christmas Nano

Looks like I have a new nano! Cherry has given me her 4gal nano since she returned to school [higher education is good for something!] and I'm doing an overhaul.

This is how it looked when I got it. A nice crypt, some floating hornwort and java moss and
there's an evil male betta [who ate one of the shrimp before I could rescue them--Cherry didn't know about shrimp and bettas...] and 2 nerite snails. Going to try baby's breath on the bottom but right now it's looking lame and might be dying off.

I got a great little piece of driftwood and have tied the moss to it, it stays submerged very well but there's the expected tannins coming off it for a while. So here's to new tanks!!!

Do you have a pic of the re-vamped tank?

Baby's breath... Do you mean Baby tears?

Did you boil the driftwood before adding it to your tank?... This will help with the leaching tannins.

I would suggest some more hardscape....another rock or two, but some driftwood would really look nice in there! Nice nano, though!!!!

Overhaul in progress:

Pulled the crypt, baby TEARS melted

Tied java moss to driftwood

Tied nana petite to driftwood

Added 2 Coffeefolia--I like the similarity in form between them and the nanas

Still not happy with the look and waiting for the tannins to leave before pics.

Going to pull the betta--I have 10 Cherry shrimp coming!
