That's a steal! Is that a shipped price, or before shipping?! I've been wanting some for my own Mini S as well.

Personally, I wouldn't put pygmy cories in a tank that small Usually people keep them in 10 gallon tanks as a minimum. Some shrimp or pygmy sunfish would be great in that tank IMO.

That's before shipping. They're pretty small though from what I say, the same side as an adult neo.

For the price, you can't beat this tank. The silicone matches ADA's quality exactly. By far one of the neatest little tanks I've owned.
I dunno... well with endlers if you have males and females... of course they will breed real fast, I have a tiger endler colony going right now in my 5 gallon tank, I started with 2 females and 1 male in july and now I have about 20 endlers including of all fry maturity. Five gallons can probably handle 25 or so adult like endlers.

The males are really interesting looking and the display behavior they do is pretty funny to watch.

I can't add much about the mountain minnows though


good luck deciding

great tank btw

I think I might try and source some Endlers. Maybe a few Pygmy Cories too, because I want some for my Mini S anyway. We'll see.

Thanks for all the advice, guys.

Depending upon what I've got in my container pond, I may be able to hook you up with some Lime Greens for the cost of shipping. I'll check later today when I turn the pumps off for feeding if you're interested.

PM'd ya!

I added those Glosso patties today. When this fills in, it'll look amazing. Plus, it'll be low tech, low maintenance, and was a breeze to set up!

Your Wabi-Kusa look great! I thought you would find this interesting...

Tonight I was looking for Wabi-Kusa ideas and pictures on Google Images and one picture lead me to a site that had an actual ADA Wabi-Kusa from Japan and surprising (to me anyway) was that the guy cut open the Wabi-Kusa to see what was in it and it had rocks and straw in the middle then the moss around it. Rocks make since for weight, not sure what kind they were, and maybe the straw is good for something too?

Hi there,

How do you actually make the substrate ball? I am searching over the web and it is simple as just adding water to the substrate and try to make it a ball shape???



Please forgive me for my grammar mistakes!

Okay, I know, I know. It's finally Friday, so I was able to clean the tank up a bit. Added some Hydrocotyle Japan (I think) and some Blyxa japonica, which look nice. They'll look great in a few weeks. I will update tomorrow, really.

So, um, here's that update I was talking about . Please pardon the algae. There's really not that much to see. I'm pretty indifferent to this tank right now -- I don't really care for it, nor do I dislike it, and it's sort of at this limbo-stage of whether it's worth keeping up in this state or changing it to some new scape. There're a lot of really great things I could be doing if I didn't have, you know, like, a formal education to pursue. Anyway, end of that rant.





Enjoy! Suggestions are welcomed, in fact, begged.

I think it looks great and that you should keep it running. Since you're busy, it could be a great, low-maintenance tank that allows you to easily try out new scapes without much effort.

So many easy, simple possibilities, as well. Manzanita, stone, WK, random crypts, moss and shrimp. Just change it up every little bit to see what you like.
