i used to maintain a nano tank and i get very messy in the end cos when you put ur hand into ti or use tweezer to fix something. the water gets very cloudy, nowadays, i just leve it there and put some java moss into it plus some baby lobster and til now everything ok.

My point is that: A nano tank is NOT a scale down version of typical tank. You can create a uique world such a tree root corner or stagnent water scene

Cryptocoryne species would be best suited for these small setups.
Placing a layer of Aquasoil and just toping up water once everything has settled makes for a perfect low tech tank on the desktop or coffeetable.

i was told by bro higher(i think is him lah..) b4, if u have a small tank, or cramp sapce in tank, try to use thin leaves plants and not broad rounded leaves.
This way it makes ur tank looks bigger.

Guide to plants is that:

Small plants become medium sized in a nano tank.
Mini plants (glosso, HC) become small in a nano tank.
In addition, you can create the effect of 'bushes' by wrapping moss or mini-pelia around a rock.

You can make a reconstruction of a large scene - e.g. boulders on a hillside, or a reconstruction of a small scene - e.g. plants growing by a tree root.

If done successfully, a small tank when photographed can fool people into believing it is much larger.

Also note that most 'small stem plants' would grow long and tall with sufficient co2 and lights.
