I have that filter too, did you get it from Maidenhead? Cheap and cheerful for a nano
It is mate, does the job though I will one day get round to building a cabinet and using an external filter.
Please elaborate on the name brand of that cute filter. I couldn't find it on the Maidenhead site. I'm in the U.S. and would like to know if it's available here. Gorgeous tank by the way.
Hi there travellife, apologies for the late reply, the filter came with a superfish aquarium set I never got round to using, I'm not sure of the specifications of the filter but superfish or aquadistri is the brand.
Wow! I am beside myself with envy; you have the "Touch"
Thank you Uslanja, this tank has been a joy to look after though I will be taking it down in the next few weeks, a few quick iPhone pics,
Overgrown Monte Carlo
Shrimp keep throwing soil over my nice sand foreground,
Emersed plants have browned out again due to the cold weather ?
Plan to gradually move the shrimp and ramshorn snails over to a new tank during the next few weeks then give this scape a clean up and try to get a half decent pic to end the thread,
Thanks for the comments and likes along the way folks

You often get issues with low humidity in the winter. The problem is that even when the air is fully saturated with water (100% RH) it is cold, and the total amount of water held (absolute humidity) is small.
When the cold damp air is in the house it warms, and then it becomes warm dry air and you get the problems with browning to leaf edges and tips.
Thanks Darrel, spot on explanation as always, replacement nano has been running for a few weeks now, seeing good signs of growth, a little gsa and diatoms creeping in,
Will start adding a few more ramshorn snails tomorrow, then a few shrimp over the next few weeks,
Cheers for looking
though I can't help but feel a little bereaved for the "old nano" ... what's this new guy got anyway
Looks like it's off to a great start
- though of course now we need the specifications LIST
old nano has been moved to the living room, once the shrimp and snails have all been transferred it'll be rescaped and shiny glassware, led light and nice cabinet added to its equipment list ,
Specs for this one clearseal 28x20x20 cm tank, flexi mini led, 150ltr per hour internal filter
Hardscape few bits of dragonstone.
You just know you're going to have to identify make & model on that internal
It's an aqua 50 produced by aquadistri, cheap an cheerful, I'm running it horizontally as it's too tall vertically
That's looking very cool
Nice little tanks..
I did about the same, all tho i assume i see Hydrocotyl tripartita above your tank among others, but mainle the tripartita shows brown leaves for so far i can see.
In my case i do not have any browing of leaves and also regularly have temperatures of 13°C in the house now.. Tripartita is a pretty hardy plant for growing emersed. In your case i rather suspect the ligts are a bit to close to it...
As you can see i even got it growing (vining) rather high above the tank and it did this the last 3 weeks.
Kitchen Nano mk2 ready for inhabitants, weekend off coming up so the mini m will be stripped and the shrimp and snails moved here.
Lovely...delicate and well tended garden
Do you have a link for the 10w light? My son recently managed to snap my denerle light and chuck it into the tank
Need something to replace.

That's the one I used over the mini m, the cable is ridiculously short, easy enough to lengthen though, I'm using a flexi mini led over this scape though.
Fab. Thanks for this.
