New photos of the retro nanos. I have been reduced to two tanks. The marble is named Mantis, and the crowntail is Rayfin. Let me know if you want plant specs. I can beat my brain up and try to remember most of the names. There are some odd/rare plants like the white anubias and stardust anubias, and some Bucephalandras.

Here's a little evolution of my planted shrimp tank.




the last pic is of my two tanks, I know the (left) betta tank doesn't look good yet. But he's going to have a new (bigger!) home soon :3

EEEP All of these photos are getting me excited! I got myself a Fluvel spec V 5 gallon today and started added the dirt and rocks in. I still need a larger drift wood. (will go to LFS tomorrow to get it) but once I get that, I will be adding the plants and cap. or should I add the cap first than plants? XD I will take photos of the tank tomorrow night once I get it all set up.

I wouldn't trust myself to keep an $80 plant alive. It's also why I'd never spend a bunch of money to buy a betta from Aquabid. I am careful with my plants and fish but there's too much to lose for a non-expert like me to pay that much.
Although, I did pay $80 for two orchids two weeks ago, and they're types I've never had before so that makes me nervous. lol

Neither would I. Lol
I already have a lot of money put into my tanks. If hubby found out I spent $80 on a single plant, he'd probably kill me.

Orchids aren't that hard. My boyfriend has kept his rare varieties alive for 8 years now without any problems or special treatment. Good luck.

My mother spent $300 on plants (non-aquatic, but still) and they all died the next year. O.o
