Love both your scapes, can't wait to see the next one! Makes me want to setup a nano tank of some sort, really looks smaller than 25g. (which I like)

New scape planted on Feb. 20, 2020

Plants used:

- Downoi
- Anubias Petite
- Pinnatifida
- Mini Buce
- Littorella Uniflora
- Hygrophila Araguaia
- Pogostemon Erectus

All plants we're tropica tissue culture's excluding the epiphytes & pogo. Using littorella as my carpeting plant, I don't know if it's new/rare or what but i've never really seen it around the forum or used in any scapes recently. Cool looking thick grassy plant, interested to see how it does. Still have to add 2 pots of weeping moss and i'll be set.

The lava rock definitely has a more reddish tint while underwater which is meh but should look better once aged a little more+moss.

What school of nano fish to add.....?

Really nice work. Every time I see a planted cube tank like this I feel tempted to set one up

2.5 weeks in..

All stock is now in which includes:

- 14 Emerald Eye Rasbora
- 3 Celestial Pearl Danio
- 1 Otto
- 2 Amano Shrimp
- 50 Fire Red Shrimp

Decided against adding nerite snails as I don't want any white eggs on my rocks.

Added weeping moss/mini pelia to the rocks. Most of the anubias petite melted away but other than that all plants are looking good. No algae/diatoms as of yet..







Closeup of the carpeting plant Littorella Uniflora. Similar look/length to dwarf hairgrass but has a thicker/tubular stalk and sort of reminds me of a succulent. Waiting for it to take off..
