About Yourself: I used to have a 55-gallon planted tank, but now I am in a smaller apt. so I am trying out the nano tank. So far, I think it is quite elegant, but we'll see how everything fares in the long run! I welcome all (constructive) feedback, so please let me know what you think!
Fish Kept: 3 Otocinclus affinis (a.k.a. Oto Cat) 1 Corydoras julii (a.k.a. Leopard Cory) 1 Corydoras splendens (a.k.a. Elegant or Emerald Cory) 1 Caridina japonica (a.k.a. Amano shrimp) In the future I would like to add: 10 Neocardinia heteropoda (a.k.a. Red Cherry Shrimp)
Corals/Plants: Eleocharis parvula (a.k.a. Dwarf Hairgrass) Hemianthus callitrichoides (a.k.a. Dwarf Baby Tears) In the future I would like to add: Vesicularia dubyana (Java moss) affixed to wood in the shape of a dwarf pine tree
