    The first time I saw nano tanks by Diego Sandoval I realized how they could be beautiful and complex. He bought me for all times.

    Few more photos:

    The shrimp in the tank help to give the size of the tank away.

    Update.
    Stiphodon and our local snail Theodoxus Danubialis were added to clean right side of central stone.

    I am not satisfied with the appearance of the back right corner. I'm still trying to improve it.

    Looking at the back RH corner there is not much that can be done.

    Could it be lowered a few cm ?

    It looks very clean if a aged greenish tinge could grow on it might help.

    Two and a half years later this 6 liter tank is still at the same place and with all the fish alive.
    Wood disintegrated and the time has come for a more thorough cleaning and new setup.
    Farewell to the old setup with this picture a little improved in PS. (I removed filter tube from it)

    This time I will try to make something minimalistic.

    I know its only my stupid sight flow, I prefer sloping to the right.

    Its still a very good rock set up and placement.

    You raised very interesting question with quoted remark.

    It is a question of leading eye, brain hemispheres perception of abstract and rational information and culturological heritage (Western people read from left to right, you drive on the left side of the road, me on the right... :);) )

    Something to think about...

    Original photo with a little bit of floating green...

    Mirror image for those who prefer opposite....;)

    ...and a third one PS-ed, for those who like symmetry or upside down... :rolleyes:

    When those two photos I instantly relax and see more in the second photo

    Its over 50 years ago I learnt all that stuff, I vaguely remember it has some thing to do with the eye and the brain.

    Then there is the vertical writings.

    When sketching/drawing I always start from the left and work to the right.

    Are you going to have any low ground cover plants?

    In some moment yes, but not now.
    Now I enjoy in upside-down minimalistic setup, with floating green on top.

    Dynamics of this tank is also interesting. The surface is calm and green, but stiphodon is constantly digging and changing the configuration of the bottom, searching for food. The bottom is wavy like dunes in the desert and every morning looks different.
    At this point it is difficult to plant anything in the substrate.

    Update after 4 months.
    Tank is still active, and remains stable with minimal maintenance (weekly replacement of 2 liters of water)
