Hi all,
Microsorum pteropus "Short Narrow Leaf"
-Bucephalandra Mini kir royale + mini velvet green + Brownie blue
-java spring moss (mini weeping)
-fissidens fox
-cryptocoryne parva
-Limnobium laevigatum
I think that is a good plant list.

I really like the way you've arranged the wood and rocks, it looks like the roots of a <"Strangler fig">.

New tank, new hardscape...first shot;

160217053911405321.jpg

This will be semi low tech; liquid CO2, ada soil, ferts, mid lightning, any advices for plants are welcome! :)

Here's my first list:

Bucephalandra,
Crypto.parva
Anubia mini
Mosses (fissidens, weeping)

Thanks! ;)

That looks awesome, I'll be watching this one; as I've considered similar small set-ups with liquid carbon, be good to see if it can be pulled off :)

If it's not too intrusive a question, can i please ask what sort of price the set-up came to? Only that I have seen the Flexi M recently advertised at £99, and would be looking to compare

Thanks.

About pricing, dennerle sells these kit options:
-Nano cube betta 20l (non led lightning 11w+inter corner filter+tank+tank top):69€ on amazon (best choice to me)

-Nano cube complete plus (same as betta but with complete dennerle soil and shrimp food): 99€ amazon.

-Nano cube led (same as complete but with dennerle led 5.0): 143€ amazon.

That´s it, in my opinion dennerle is expensive, tank is ok (far from an optiwhite in terms of finition but the front rounded corners are cool), internal filter is silent but that´s it.

I bought this kit (nano cube 20l+chihiros aquasky led) 40€ from a friend, that was si cheap I Couldn't resist. I also added an 10€ external mini filter.

Very nice. Love the hardscape!

Idea: Someone should do a kickstarter for a mini canister (mini lily pipes) filter with built-in CO2 reactor and heater for nano applications.

Nice tank you have there:) how do you keep the ADA soil from mixing with your la plata sand? Mine eventually mixes no matter how well separated (using rocks) the two substrates are.
