    Whatís good scape members, just here updated, you know the usual.

    So far the nano tank has gone through a little bit of changes since last updated. The beta is no longer in the tank. I saw it swimming towards the surface a lot and looks like it was getting nipped, idk what fish it was but since then heís been moved and has been slowly recovering.


    The stem plants have been growing out really good, I try to trim them and replant as much as I can but Iím running out of room to plant lol! But over all theyíre showing nice colors. I would like to get that plant a little more red, but I know it might be a light thing. Iím running a nicrew I got from amazon. But Iíve been itching to get a new light, a light that would actually fit lol

    here are some top views. I donít really see this view because of the light + a lid. The glass lid makes everything look cool except when it blocks this nice view! Iím thinking of taking out the lid but my brothers huskys hair will probably end up in the water.. and thatís something I donít want to deal with lol. Iíve been using liquid ferts like seachem potassium and seachem flourish.

    I went out and got some Pygmy corydoras! Never had corydoras but these are the right size. I got 2 from lotus and then got 3 more yesterday from a fish store Iíve never heard of till that day. Itís in Culver City, I think itís called Rubenís aquarium. Funny because I pass there everyday and never been inside. They have a nice selection of fish but donít really recommend their plants. They have a few display tanks but most are not well maintained. Anyways, I got these from them and they look healthy


    these here are the usual close up shots from a week ago. If youíd like to see more of my pictures just follow me on Instagram @aa.aquascaping I post a lot lol so give me a follow! Enjoy

    Pygmy cories are so cute. Hope yours do well!

    Have you considered putting a background on this tank, so we can't see the CO2 bottle through it?

    Hereís another update,
    I was in a group buy and I decided to get some nano fish! I got the gold ring danios, I got 7 to be exact.
    Theyíre still a bit shy but their colors will pop out in no time! (Hopefully)
    At the meet I came up on a stainless steel difusser for the nano tank!
    I also picked up some plants for the tank at the meet. I got the crypt flamingo and some hygrophila araguaia!

    Nothing much to update here, all has been good and no algae issue or anything. Enjoy the pics

    Hereís a funny picture of my dog looking into the new scape Iíve been working on, looks like she likes it lol

    Itís been a while since Iíve updated this thread... hereís whatís new; two days ago after a water change I had a sudden loss of about 6 fish (1 gold ring danio, 4 espei rasboras, 1 micro euro Rasbora) I donít know what happen... ammonia 0ppm pH 7.0 nitrite 40ppm (Iíve heard some ppl have no problems with bite nitrites?) and nitrate 0ppm... so who knows.... I donít plan on replacing any of those... tank was a little over stocked so I guess it is what it is. Another cool thing is the hygro araguaia that I won at the meet has been doing so great it looks so nice my dhg has been getting extra thicc and extra full so thatís great... this Ada soil has really done the job. Another cool thing is that suedehead hooked me up with some buce and theyíve been doing great! The crypt flamingo is really really slow growing... Iíve probably seen one new leaf emerging so thatís exciting lol. Another cool fish I got was a chocolate gourami... that thing is so small lol hopefully itíll grow a little bigger... hereís some pics

    Whatís up everyone... this nano tank has probably been my best tank up to date imo...
    the dhg carpet has been a success! Iím going to add pics of when it first planted... to now


    Iím running a nicrew led light on this tank. The plants Iíve gotten to like and enjoy are the hygrophila araguaia.

    I havenít added any other fish or plants since the incident where my fish died randomly... RIP espei rasboras lol
    Here are close up shots...
