    Hi

    I am from Mexico, new to aquaescaping and my favorite fishes are aaaaall tetras. Pristella, X-Ray, Neon, Cardinal, Black, penguin, black, chinesse, congo, etc.

    I have an uggly nano tank because i had never cared before about the looks, just about the fishes.

    I hope that changes and i come up someday with nice aquaescapes or even competition-grade aquaescapes :)

    Hello and welcome to ASW. As Greenfinger pointed out that sword is much too big for your scape, it may look nice now...but if it starts to grow it will quickly outgrow its home. Try replacing it with a Cryptocoryne wendtii.

    Your inert gravel substrate is not the best for planting rooting plants. Either replace the substrate or add some root tabs regularly (every 3 months) under the gravel where you planted. You could work with the inert gravel and use some more wood with anubias species tied to it instead of the sword or crypt in that location.

    I suggest reading up on what plants need, look at some scapes you like and what types of equipment they use, and try to emulate those methods to improve your skills.

    Thank you very much guys. This helps me a lot.

    That tank has a short history that I posted on general discussion. Will update with your suggestions ShadowMac.

    A big welcome to ASW can you fill in your location and Country please.

    I zthink if we all (including me) could show you our first efforts your tank would certainly not be the worst.

    OK it requires work but that's the easy part, my suggestion is easy leave it alone and spend the next few weeks researching and planning your new tank and I can guarantee it will look fantastic.

    Roy greenfinger will back me up at that one.
