The Best Nano Tank Setups

Small tanks are a great way to get into the aquarium hobby.

They’re not very expensive, but it provides an easy way to learn about aquascaping, lighting, and other techniques they’re important for the amateur aquarist to learn early.

The nano tank setups below are some great combinations that will give you the best results for your tank.

Know that they’re not necessarily arranged by price, but are instead arranged by the type of tank. (Shrimp, Fish, Betta, and so on.)

Nano Planted Shrimp Tank

A Planted Shrimp Tank for less than $230

This set up provides an excellent tank with hardy plants, Plus Cherry Red Shrimp that contrast vibrantly with the black substrate.

The filter (Eheim 2213) included is one of the highest-rated filters for small tanks, and is a great brand (some would even argue that it’s a better brand than ADA’s filters.)

The black soil also sustains great plant growth and contrasts fantastically with the Cherry Red Shrimps’ color.

Aquascaping Neon Tetra Tank

The Aquascaper’s Neon Tetra Tank

Done correctly, this tank will be a beautiful addition for any Aquascaper.

The tetras have a natural school and the fact that creates a great sense of scale with the rock in the tank, end of the black sand matches perfectly with the neon tetra’s bright coloring.

With the Amazon sword in and behind the aqua escaping rock, and the Anubias Nana as a foreground addition, this tank has the potential to win awards for its beauty.

Classic Nano Desktop Shrimp Tank

The Classic Desktop Shrimp Tank

This tank is perfect for any desktop in an office or home. The Dwarf Hairgrass will spread quickly and beautifully across the tank’s floor, and provide a great place for the shrimp to comb through.

The Cherry Red Shrimp will contrast perfectly with the black fluorite, and the Driftwood provides some great drama to the tank. As a bonus, the shrimp will breed easily in the Willow Moss.
