After being out of the hobby for a year and well over 12 years since my last planted tank, I've decided to get back into the hobby with something that I had never tried before: a dirted tank / Walstad method / Natural Planted Tank (NPT).
Tank: FLUVAL Spec V (5 gallon)
Equipment: original pump...
Looking to start a nano planted tank on a tiny budget. Inherited a neglected betta and want to give him a decent home.
I'll need a small tank (not less than 5g - I want lots of room for plants), heater, lighting, filter, etc. If anyone has suitable things things for sale pm me!
A series of stock FLUVAL SPEC planted nano tanks that demonstrates the potential of Low-tech and Low-light aquascaping in 2.0, 2.5, and 5.5 gallons of water. No CO2 injection and high wattage required. More upcoming tanks...
As much as it is challenging to cultivate a healthy and thriving nano...

5 Month Update on two Fluval Spec V Low-Tech Nano tanks. They are fully planted, nano fish community tanks. I use the stock 7500k LED fluval lights that came with the kit, but all the plants haven been doing great so far because of additional daylight from...
I sold my first planted tank this evening (to make room for my 120p ;)) and figured I would post a few pics,

I'm currently setting up a 2.25 gallon tall glass vase for some shrimp after seeing this thread:http://www.plantedtank.net/forums/planted-nano-tanks/148229-4-gallon-cylindrical-nano-forest.html
I need some advice on plants and lighting. I need a light to keep some low to medium light...
When I first got my cherry shrimp about 3 weeks ago I thought it would be a while before I would see one berried. The biggest of the 10 I have in my 10 gallon community tank are 3/4" to 1", and I was thinking they weren't even capable of getting berried at this age/length.
So when I...
Having just sold my beautiful 40 gallon acrylic, I have some cash burning a hole in my pocket, and an itch to try something new (and smaller of course)! The Fluval edge has caught my eye, but I am thinking it would work better as a non-planted tank since I don't particularly want to get into...
