Lovely artistic aquascape, nicely done. Reminds me of a miniature Amano design.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

safe to assume 3-4 WPG and CO2?
(asking since there's a bit of pearling going on.)

Thank you Byron, it is insipred by Amano to be more exact by his iwagumi designs.
Redrich there is no co2 in the tank , just EasyLife Profito, EasyLife EasyCarbo and JBL Ferropol 24.

Seems to be a lot of pearling if there's no CO2.

Did you just set the tank up?

Nope, the tank has been set up for about 1 week, didn't post pics as i had no plants yet.
Good light, good fert and you don't need co2 to pearl.

Totally true. Very, very few tanks run anywhere above 3 wpg unless you are getting into Salt water or nano. Sure it can be done, but with the lights we have now adays all you have made is a very high maintance tank that has a very narrow 'balance' zone. It all depends how you have things setup, lighting, ferts, CO2 just need to balance. I royally pissed off my 55gal w/ 2wpg and CO2, last to weeks has been an algae invasion even with CO2 cranked up. I have a 20gal sitting upstairs with almost 3 wpg that hasn't seen CO2 in months.... very little aglae.

Its also a nano, its easy IMO to get pearling in those... they can be a little unstable and you need more light than normal, 3 wpg is kinda average for a nano. My first attempt with a 2.5 gal and a 13 watt bulb was 100% unsuccessful, I probably set it up all wrong though. I have less than a gallon of water with a 13 watt bulb 8" off the surface that oddly is more stable and algae free than any of my tanks. It never gets so much as a water change either, why can my other tanks be like that!

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
