So I'm going off to college this year and I realized I wouldn't be able to bring my 60P or Mini-L
Just keeping it maintenance and dragging buckets of water was unrealistic.
So i chose the 45F because of a few reasons, its only a 4.6 gallon tank, maybe even less when I put rocks in. Also, the low height allows me to maintenance the tank and keep my hands dry. It will be low enough to where I can leave it on the desk and be able to work on it with ease of access. The 45F also allows shrimp to have more roaming space, it is literally a Mini-L, but shorter.
ADA 45-F (4.6 gallons)
Aqua Soil normal and powder
Eheim 2213, might choose different filtration if too much
Fishneedit 2x24watt (using only 1 bulb)
Hydor Inline heater
Don't know what else to add
Dragging 5 gallon buckets of water form grocery store :p
I ordered the tank 7/11 at 1am and it came 7/12 12pm. lol
props to AFA
This thing was packed TIGHT!
Added some fertilizers, just seeing if it will cause an algae explosion or plant explosion
Now I wait till i get some rocks, my HC comes in, and i will add layer of powder on top of it too!
