Feel free to include basic tank specs, and a link to your thread journal if you have one (if you don't go create one).

remind me to do this later. I have a few nanos. one is a 2.5 hex with crypts, inspired by a similar tank on the web. Another is trying to grow hairgrass in some Petco nanos, but a field of hairgrass in a nano can be boring so it's a work in progress, as I rip out hairgrass and try other plantings. Fourth is a 2.5 gallon in which nothing grows well. I have a dwarf frog in it.

Default Just updated

Not the best pic (can't see the Pristellas or shrimp, but it gives a 'scape update - new sprig of Cabomba to grow out, mondo grass gone, adding sand, to eventually replace the gravel)

OK so I posted a new thread, rather than hijack this one for nano-nano.
