Planted tanks don't have to be large or expensive and everyone has room for a nano. They are cheap to set up and run, cheap to stock and water changes are a doddle. You can even move it from room to room!

When it comes to livestock, owners of small tanks have never had it so good. Choose from a myriad of fashionable new freshwater shrimp, Boraras, snails and some great little plants that will guarantee as much enjoyment as any

larger tank.
