Ok i think it is time i put up my nano tank journal,

Equiptment,

20L dennerle Nano tank
Dennerle nano filter
Arcadia 11W arcpod
Aqua one 25W heater at 22C

The substrate system used is the one which came in the tank with a few modifications along the way in the way of TPN+ tabs and Unipac Zambezi Sand.

Hard scape is redmoor root and ADA Seiryu Stone.

First up i added a small amount of fine black gravle th the bottom of the tank,

I added some deviders into the tank to seperate the two substrates i used and added the sand,
