Show off your Planted Nano Aquarium in this thread!

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.

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)

I like that one Steven--looks like a small river there where you have the rock in front.

Nice "sketchbook" at deviantart too.

You're right, it's an art form. I wouldn't be interested at all for all the tech stuff except that aquascaping is an extension of my already artistic tendencies.

Good luck to you!
