    I have that filter too, did you get it from Maidenhead? Cheap and cheerful for a nano :D

    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.

    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,

    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 :)

    Hi all,
    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.

    cheers Darrel

    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 :)

    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. :)
