    I have put together a new quick planted nano setup. I got this nice glass vase for $20 at Hobby Lobby with their 50% off sale. It holds about two gallons.

    That is just a simple clamp light (~$6) with a spiral CF bulb (~$3).

    Here is one of the plants that I am going to stick in there, an Aponogeton sp. in a Tank Planter.

    Hey well here is another new quick picture. I have some of my favorite houseplants set up there.

    I added a little bright orange platy too.

    I look forward to trying more plant combinations. It is easy to switch out the plants because I have them going in Tank Planters.

    I worked on this some tonight and got a quick picture. I added a big Cryptocoryne pontederiifolia that I like a lot. There are also a couple of blooming orchids there on top of the fridge.
