Pretty pretty little tank......and yes, I'm stalking your tanks!
I skimmed this thread, didn't see anything about a light, do you have one on this 1/2 gallon tank? That rock w/HC on it looks beautiful....
Hehe thanks, it's more of a recycled mistake purchase. Sitting under a hydroponic Aerogarden, so twin 1450 lumens. Best light out of any of my tanks (all low-tech).
See... he knew what was up with the shrimp lol.
I personally cannot keep track of it though.
Still unsure of which shrimp to use. I'll decide once everything is said and done.
I never order anything online so theres never anything to bundle shipping with. I'll work with whats local. Try to get some sort filter up.
I realised the filter I was looking at was just a modified sponge filter. They just made it so the bubbles never entered the actual water column.
There are a few mom and pop fish stores I could try and see if they have a filter like yours in. Might have to go check tomorrow.
I'll have to see what grows in yours!! So far I don't know what to put in mine.
I have some marsilea that never lost its 4 leaf clover form. Perhaps It will survive in there. I just do not know if it will keep its 4 leaf clover form in such low light tank.
I wonder how long these tiny things take to cycle...
I suppose a small clipping of one of my sponges from my aquaclears would be enough to cycle it first day huh?
I just love this mini tank.
Thaank you so much for everything!! youve been such an awesome help.
I have some really tiny fountain pumps lying around everywhere.... I could try and rig a tiny filter with one of those.
I forgot you were in CA, Amazon tax will kill most deals anyway. Not looking forward to moving there for that sole reason (well, and the living cost).
I took 4 of those white biomedia things from an older tank (was Aquaclear brand media), and 4 new ones, spread in a single layer in the tiny filter. It pretty much came precycled.
Marsilea is an amazing foreground plant! Adapts to any lighting condition, it'll be fine in ambient light in your bathroom too. Mine is under high light so I have more room to play around. I need to buy some dwarf marsilea for my low light tanks.
Can't wait to see how yours turn out!
