    How small is a tank to be regarded as a nano?

    Don't like the bettas that much. :smile1:

    Could add something like a dwarf gourami, but I am happy with it like it is at the moment.

    An update.

    I have added some plants and fish.

    Added Rosy tetra's and some cory catfish.

    The plant types I don't know. If anyone knows please tell.

    It looks stunning! Is that a Madagascar lace plant in the top picture? Where did you get it from, it looks great!

    Sjoe but this tank looks gr8! Well done!

    From what I can see in the pics

    Hygro Polysperma
    Rotala Macranda
    Aponogeton Madagascariensis
    Alternanthera reineckii (or sessilis)
    Sagittaria Subulata (might be a bit of a debate on this one...has the alias Echinodorus Henk-Hugo) :)

    Thanks. That is most of them.

    There is still one I am wondering about. The one in pic 2 on the left.
    It has a fine smallish leaf (almost the shape and size of a jacaranda tree's) with a reddish tint.
    It didn't look too good in the petshop but I took it and it seems to be ok. It is making new leafs.

    Good to see we have guys with proper plant knowledge here. Appreciate the effort.

    Max98 - did you purchase your Laceleaf with this last import from Waterzoo?? If so, then I take my hat off to you for the growth on it. Is that just using light with no CO2 or anything???

    Yup. Was from the last import.
    I am running metal halide lighting and pressurized co2.
