In this step-by-step guide, Youtuber Green Aqua shows you how to create your first Nano Aquascape. By starting your fish keeping with a small scale build, you can learn everything you need to know about larger projects.
Start by pouring one cup of Amazonia soil in the background of your tank. For this build, you will be separating the foreground and the background with rocks, so once you have the soil in, pour sand in the front to create visual separation.
As with all aquariums, the more plants you put in the better. For this guide, he suggests a variety of plants that include Elatine, Bucephalandra, and Echnodorus Vesuvius.
