Hello all! I haven't posted on this website in a while - I've spent the past few weeks brewing up a planted nano & figured I'd post some of the progression thus far.

A more detailed thread about this tank can be found here

I'm using an Aqueon Evolve 8 acrylic tank kit with a slightly modified filter compartment & modified filter media. Substrate is Miracle-Gro Organic Choice Potting Soil capped with 1mm-grain clear Silica sand & generic white aquarium sand for a "foreground beach". Decor is a piece of Mopani Wood along with various whitish quartz stones collected locally.

Tank Goals:
A small, easy-to-manage "low tech" (ie low light & non CO2-injected) dirt substrate planted tank

Plant List as of Day 19:
-Cryptocoryne Wendtii "Green"
-Cryptocoryne Wendtii "Bronze"
-Cryptocoryne Aponogetifolia "Ruffled"
-Anubias Barteri
-Anubias Nana
-Cardamine Lyrata
-Microsorum Pteropus (Java Fern)
-Nymphoides Aquatica (Banana Plant)
-Pistia Stratiotes (Water Lettuce)
-Taxiphyllum Barbieri (Java Moss)
-Small amounts of Lemna Minor (Duckweed)

Plants I intend to add soon:
-Eleocharis Acicularis (Dwarf Hairgrass)
-Glossostigma Elatinoides (Glosso)
