After much pleading got permission to keep a Nano in bedroom
My intention is to keep rescaping the tank in different styles every few months and i'll post pics whenever the tank becomes presentable.
Capacity: 14 Litres
Age: 45 Days
Substrate: Fluval Stratum
Light: 12W DIY Led with 3D printed mounts
CO2: Pressurized with ceramic diffuser
Filtration: External Canister
Plants: S.Repens, H. Pinnatifida, H. Tripartita, Monte Carlo, Vesicularia ferriei, Anubias Nana, H. micranthemoides
Fish: Otocinclus, Paskai Rainbow.
It was quite difficult to maintain water quality in such a small tank, so 2 days back I have removed the above tank and done a rescape on a 12" Cube.
Also a short review on Fluval Stratum, it does not give an ammonium spike like amazonia initially, plant growth has been good. However i cannot comment whether it'll keep its granular shape in longterm. Also worth mentioning that i have not done any daily water changes as amazonia requires for the first few weeks...

Little update on new scape
This is the only good photo I have before things went southward. Things to blame are crappy boyu canister filter which has a design flaw of bypass. Much of the water gets in and out without passing through filter media, which sadly i realized very late. The driftwood was not treated for months before setup. Had fungus issues for over a months time. Even after daily / alternate days water changes and cleaning I was not able to keep up water quality. Even though plants took off initially, eventually most of them melted.
So have replaced filter with trusted Eheim 2211 and the flow has also improved. Did a rescape again to use minimal moss due to upcoming summer. Survived plants are taking off again...
