Advice: Less is more, unless you are talking about plants, in which case more is more! Understock, and in your first month, you are better off not stocking anything at all and letting the plants and bacteria work their magic.
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
Tank Size: 3 gallons
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!
