thanks mate, I don’t know yet about the shrimps species, regarding my tap water it will be easy species to maintain like neocaridina Yellow neon ;)

:clap:Great job

thank you, nothing overcomplicated, just a small nano for my son. :)

Nice! Love your style it's very unique! :thumbup:

Thanks Sammy!

Cool idea i like that my co2 art os very very sensitive i barley touch the regulator adjuster and to many bps its very hard to get right o think i need one what is a good full turn to even add 1 bps eventually.

Looks great though mate

those China one are perfect and easy to adjust ;)


Bringing aquascaping snobbery to new heights: Speyside Single Malt CO2, Sherry Cask Matured. 😁 Are you listening, ADA?!

Lovely scape mate.
Thanks for the laugh 😆

Great scape as always @CooKieS you have a great eye for this stuff! It’s hard to believe that’s a 17 litre tank, you’ve managed to make it look much larger in terms of scale.

Thanks for you support mate, appreciate it! :)

I’m looking to add details like small roots or branches later to improve it. ;)

Would you guys add some fishes in this small volume? It’s 31cm long, I was thinking about some borara? Or is it definitively too small for fish? Thanks

I’m not an expert by any means, but I tend to think even my 60 x 30 x 30 tank is a little small for fish. My shoal of Boraras Brigittae seem perfectly happy, but can easily lap the tank in a few seconds.

You could maybe add 8 of them to that tank - their biological load is probably minuscule - but it’s whether you think they really have the space to live comfortably and behave naturally.

you’re right, I will probably put one male betta or an shrimp colony instead, that tank is too small. It´s like those guys from Ada who puts 10 nano fishes in a 8 liters pond tank, that’s not my vision of fish keeping:(

thanks Simon, glad you like it. :)

you’re right, the aquael HoB was to noisy for me so I’ve replaced it with my trusty aquael pat mini. ;)


Loving this, its beautiful. I have exactly the same tank but low tech for a Betta, but this makes me feel like I ought to make more effort!

feel free to get inspired, nano tank like those are so easy to Rescape and maintain, glad I planted this one as it wasn’t planned first. ;)

I was wondering which floating plant you are using?
Don't think it is on your list? I will need to get one and some look really small and others a bit too big.

Oh and do you use the original filter foam that came with the filter? I have just got mine and its really coarse.
I know that some people upgrade the size of the foam but if the tank is small then this is difficult.

Thank you for your time!
Simon.
