Just a props to The PlantGuy in hopes of green thumb karma... my fert order arrived in like three days, way faster than expected. Will definitely be ordering from him again when I set up my dirted 2.5 gallon nano. Any suggestions on plants for a really small tank? Thanks PlantGuy!

THanks, glad to hear that....in terms of nano tanks, one of the things I'm going to start promoting is the use of tissue culture plants. Tissue culture plants are primarily known for being algae and snail free. For me this is a bit of an advertising gimick. Although its true they are snail and algae free, in my opinion if you're serious about planted tanks acquiring sterile plants shouldn't be a major factor in your choice of plants. If you setup a well balanced planted tank, snails and algae will be kept at bay naturally..

For me 2 of the more important selling points should be

1. Nano tank suitability. All plants in tissue culture are limited in size to the container they're in and they tend to be smaller in leaf structure than regular aquarium plants. This is helpful in nano tanks to maintain perspective in a nano aquascape.

2. Submerged form. Tissue culture plants are all in submerged form so there's no transition period from emmeresed to submerged growth.

So basically anything in tissue culture form would be suitable for a nano tank (as long as the other factors are in place, lights, co2 etc).
