I've got some Rotala sp. Pearl (Mini 1) and could spare you some mate if you want a truly micro stem? It's very slow growing though for me! Might work well with the scale.

Any updates on this Dan? I'm watching carefully since I have no tanks of my own for the first time in 2 years.

haha, too few plants, that's what that means. :p
Yeah, they're a nice fish those. I always fancied some, I've been looking at nano fish a lot recently and I don't think anything else would suit the tank as well as those, just the right amount of red.

How do you make sure that algae doesn't take over this tank with the low level of plant mass?
Well it's a testement to ADA I suppose? The range is very lean IMO. You can see some brown algae on the left pane but that's it. I bit on the hardscape mabye but it adds to the scape in my eyes. I've added some grading gravel from a bonsai store so hopefully that gather some alge and look a bit more natural.

Well heres an update, still very slow but really healthy. I've have a small amount of brown algae on the glass now and again but still no issues, i just love it, so easy :D
I need to play around with the rocks since they have settled out, along with the substrate but i thought i'd take a picture since i had the camera out.

C. habrosus would love that little tank or bumble bee gobies.

Awesome setup. I like the low plant mass. My 10g has a low plant mass as well, because I have stretches of sand for the catfish. Great hardscape, looks like Western dessert. :thumbup:

I really like the fact that you haven't used many plants here too - it looks really natural.
