    After moving to this House 3 Months ago i had no Tank set up here. When having my morning Coffee today and browsing the ACC 2009 it just came to my Mind: "I gotta set up a Tank now, bloody hell". So i went down and got my selfmade ADA Style Stand & the Mini M up to the House. Still had half a bag of Power Sand S, 3 (!) Mini Landscape Stones and of course all the Technics (Filter, etc.). Got to the Local Fish Shop and bought some Gravel (sadly no Aquasoil :lol:) and Plants. Most of the Plants they had were actually really POOR Conditionwise so i was very limited what to buy. They had no Carpetplants like HC, etc. so no classic Iwagumi this Time. ;)

    So here is what we have:

    ADA Mini M 20,5 Liter (36x22x26cm)
    Selfmade ADA Style Stand
    Power Sand S
    Black Gravel
    Dennerle Nano Filter, will add my Eden 501 & Glasware soon
    Aquatic Nature 26w Clipon
    Tropica Plant Nutrition +
    Easycarbo, no CO² this Time
    Mini Landscape

    Plants: Lobelia Cardinalis, Cryptocoryne Lucens,Ophiopogon jap variegata

    I have never keept any of the Plants before, any Hints?

    Now here are some Pics, please feel free to comment on the Scape. I had to use these 3 Stones as i only had 3 left, not completly happy about the Hardscape tho.

    hi eoto...again :lol:

    looking good. if i were to change one thing?....the right stone to tilt just a little, seems upright compared to the others.

    the plants would be new to me also, so I'm not totally sure what to suggest. the crypt looks similar to parva.

    i must try a nano one day.

    Nice little tank :) Have you thought about varying the rock size a bit more? Might help with the illusion of scale :)
