New nano arrived - PIC HEAVY -

This is a new chapter for me coming from a run of the mill tank. I have no idea how it will end up but this is the starting point. I just got this in the mail today and I am excited already.

It is going to be an npt, the soil is Miracle Grow Organic potting soil with a fine grain gravel cap. I am not thrilled with the sand as I have it in a test tank right now and it just doesn't do it for me. I like the white though for the contrast so.. I am also undecided what to do with the background. I taped a sheet of white paper back there for the pictures. I am up in the air on what I will do back there.

Plants are inbound and should arrive tomorrow. A mixture of things, dwarf saggitaria sub, pigmy chain sword, bacopa australis, aponogenton crispus, crypt wendtii red and hemianthus micranthemoides. Not sure how much or what will end up in this tank but that is what I chose to work with. I made my bed so now I am going to lay in it.. with potato chips and other snacks to make a mess I am sure.

I have red cherry shrimp on the way for this one, no betta for this tank I am afraid to say.

Strictly low tech is what I am hoping to achieve.

Now to make the decision, which side to show as the focal.

Comments, concerns, complaints welcome as always.

Photobucket is pretty good, if you're looking for a new host. I've used them for years, and they've yet to delete anything.

lol, I thought I was going crazy when I saw your post here since I was just looking at this post on plantedtank.net. I really love the finnex tanks, they look nice and aren't crazy expensive like the ADA tanks. Did the light come with the tank or is a different one? And what watt is it? And are you planning on Celestial Pearl Danios? So awesome!

It is a Finnex 4 g. The finish is really good and the light is awesome. I am 95% complete with the tank, I have to wait for the moss to arrive so I can finish up with the wood and place it back in the tank. In the meanwhile I added victi.. err, ghost shrimp and they have been happily foraging for the last couple of hours. I took a few pics so you can see. This is in a dark room with only the overhead tank light as my light source. This is a POG digital bleh camera so forgive how bad they are.

When you fill up the tank and add your betta, could you tell me how powerful the flow is coming out of the canister filter and if your betta has trouble swimming. I have been eying this tank for awhile now and was curious about the canister flow for a betta.

Thanks ;)
