Default 8 Gallon Finnex Nano "Land's End"

Updated and rescaped. 3 Briilant red-tailed Rasporas, and pitbull otocinclus added + more stemmed plants.


This is my 8 gallon Finnex I started out with.
More plants and fauna added. Moving up to DYI co2 by this weekend.







UPdated with more planting 02-06-05.

I managed to kill my Rotola Mac. and I added some more Ludwigia Repens to my background as well as trimmed what has allready grown. Also Anubias Nana on the right. I also have a couple more Endlers (1 was full of fry),1 otocinculas, and a cherry shrimp (looking suspicously swollen now too).

For starts I have 1 male endler's, and 1 amano shrimp.






Here I go my first trek into the planted aquarium world Nano style.

This is an 8 gallon kit I bought on ebay with a 24wt cf light. This thing has a great reflector in it.

Land's End is a local landmark but, only the name inspired my tank.

Scaped

I like your tank alot...hmmm.. $80 bucks for a 8 gallon...worth it? Dang, you sure make it look like its work the money! We'll see in a few weeks haha!

What's that heater thing on the left in the overhead shot? That shot looks great btw. My very last question..I think...where'd ya get those Awesome rocks!?

Keep updating! You're making this tank look very tempting..

Hey John,

You know the $60. plus shipping seemed at first high, but then I thought of the fact that the light would cost probally over $30. and the filter $15. or more and not to mention rimless tanks are in short supply this way. I have only been able to find the Solar Garden by ADA at the Aqua Forest aquarium a beautiful tank indeed, but $213. I felt it was worth it. The seller on EBAY too I think he goes by Mooshu200 or something like that. Is the absolute best person I have ever bought from there. It was right around christmas time and the little box in the corner of the screen said I could get it with no intersest for 3 month with paypal buyer credit. A new charge account was born.
The heater is a Finnex heater that was offerred for an additional $13. on the same listing. HPG-50 it is a 50 watt (may be I got the next size by mistake) not sure but, it works great. The dial is on the outside were the plug is the cord seems a little short for the design I have to use an extension cord.
It can only be used horizantally too another down side I guess. However from the end of the cord entering the heater to the tip is only 5 1/2 inches. Thats cool.

The rocks are Amano rocks I bought from Aqua Forest Aquarium.
I am glad you like them. I say go for the tank. You wont regret it. This is my only fish tank and I am so glad I did not buy the 10 gallon all-glass or eclipse that I were first contanplating. Do not get me wrong those are good tanks I just felt this had more style.

I sent you a pm too.
