    So I traded a member at my local forums for this tank..

    Tank is in great condition... Argh I hate setting new tanks so much work! haha
    but I figure its time to upgrade from my nanos because I got tired of trying to scape in such a small space...

    Anyways I added MGPS.. to the bottom layed it with 1-2" of 15% black sand, and the rest Fluval plant stratum


    Deciding what this tank is gonna be... hmm

    Adding pictures / more updates in a bit :D

    *edit* here's pic I need to add plants..

    Ignore the spawning mop, and extra rocks and floating plants..

    Just needed some hiding places...

    As you can see i moved the dwarf hairgrass, added some glosso in its place. the glosso on the right is spreading fast :D
