Hello, Sergio.

Welcome to APC! I LOVE your nano-tank!!! I have been trying to get C. hastatus for YEARS, but all of my attempts have been miserable failures. I've gotten a number of shops to special-order them, only to receive C. pygmaeus... EVERY SINGLE TIME . Are those Brazilian yellow-belly shrimp or some other species?

Amazing that you can get such wonderful plant growth without CO2 or fertilizer. Do you add Flourish Excel? You probably have enough fish in your tank to feed the plants.

Thanks for posting your photos! Hope to see some of your other tanks, too.

-Naomi

Hello noami: Thanks for your commentaries. The fish that there are in the aquarium are 2 females and a male of Apistogramma borelli, a small group of Corydoras hastatus. Both species are original of Argentina, like also the shrimps, probably of the Geneus Palaemonetes, Palaemonetes argentinus I think. add CO2 and fertilizer during the first 30 days, soon incorporates Hisonotus leucofrenatus (ex- otocinclus to niger) and the rest of the fish, from that moment it retires CO2 and the fertilizer. This it is the first nano-cube which I arm with a sense of aquascaping, the rest are single for "accumulating" plants.
you can see step by step here

I do not add ningun type of fertilizer, unless some plant displays some deficiency.

best regards.

Cute tank. So those are corys that swim midwater?? I have never heard of Corydoras hastatus before. Also, what is the red plant in the background?
