Love the effect of the plants in such a small aquarium
Nice video...it's given me some planting ideas for my latest hi-energy effort
& stunning Betta from Lisa Bradshaw
I've a couple of these Show Plakats & they are such engaging active fish
Very nice George! Love to see how this evolves....
Excellent! As a 'newbie' looking to rescape my tanks...only properly this time, this has been really useful.
Can I ask though....I am eager to know; what soil did you use, what lighting (wattage and hrs) and also more about what co2 set up for this size of tank...
What equipments are needed if I am going for a nano tank? Filter, CO2?
Pretty much everything you need for a larger tank https://www.ukaps.org/index.php?page=setting-up-a-higher-tech-planted-tank
That is with the exception of the equipment that goes in the tank; try to buy equipment that has been specifically made for nanos. It's smaller for obvious practical reasons, and it also helps to maintain a sense of scale.
Check out our sponsors for nano equipment, for instance nano lily pipes, nano drop checker, nano CO2 diffuser etc.
nice selection of plants given me idea on planting cheers for that George . regards jon
Ahah! The very video I saw on youtube that informed me of some of the plants for my journal build.
In the video George mentions he uses a small external filter with a built in heater, does anyone know which one? I’m looking for exactly that but haven’t been able to find one with the heater built in.
Not sure which one he refers to but check out Oase FiltoSmart thermo 100, it is rated 600l/h, so for a 50l nano, its pretty much spot on for a planted tank.
