That Glosso will be too much before long. Would you rather try some HC?

Looks like a good start. Is that the Ranunculus from me? I think HC would look better because of the size of the tank. I like the aquasoil I will have to try that some time in the future when I can scrape together enough money to buy it.

I am thinking about making a nano. What kind of equipment are you using: Lighting, water movement, co2.

Yes and no will I had bit before. Yours were runners while the one I had before was an actually plant I split into 2. Uhh 2.5 from petsmart, Lights are 2 x9 power compacts Im switching it to the 18 watt fixture when I get the legs. Red Sea nano filter DIY co2 which I will set up tomorrow.

John do you have more? I have a bit from what you gave my previously but it did not seem like I had enough so I used the glosso.

Might sound silly, but I like your rock placement - especially on the two to the right. Nice visual flow...

John- alright sounds good to me actually I might want a bit to fill up a 20 gal of it cause Im redoing my 20 gallon.

Alphacat- Thanks!
I was in a rush yesterday. Today I to got a better picture of it of the full tank.



Today I also added a heater-which is broken...just keeps heating up and a DIY co2 with bottle cap co2 bell.
