New high-tech nano
Aquael shrimp set 20 high tech!
So i got this 5.2G nano that i am going to turn into a high tech aquascape.
Will not say much for now except that the plants that are inside at the moment are sacrifice plants used during the cycle.
I will only use 3 sp. of plants but will only tell what after all is set.
65k 11W light, fertile substrate, co2 and as ferts will be using
Tropica Plant Nutrition+ liquid(has all micro and macro nutrients a plant can dream of).
As for inhabitants... was thinking fo 5-6 boraras brigittae but unsure yet.
Tank was started 2 days ago:

It has been decided that Boraras Brigittae and 1 ghost shrimp will be living inside it.
Have decided on the plants to:
utricularia graminifolia on the left side and glosso on the right with some anubias nana on the driftwood.
the 2 carpet plants will be planted from the back to the front, each on it's side and will be alowed to meet in the front and one will have more front space than the other, unsure yet if glosso or utricularia but prolly utricularia.
The red zone will be utricularia and blue is glosso(90% sure).
The brown area is where nana will be attached.
Sry for the "retarded" sketch, i suck and drawing :lol:

Today, the cycle is done, water par. are all good and since yesterday a "test" red cherry has been having fun in the tank. He will prolly stay there to not sure i want to remove it. Did a seeding from my large external filter and worked like a charm.
