"You're not putting a hundred gallon tank in the living room," my roommate replied.


10g "Community" of nothing but Danios - 2g (barely) planted Betta - 2.5g Betta - 1g Pond Snail Repository

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'

I went to my LFS the other day in search of some of these guys, WOW i didn't realize how dwarf they really are! I'm going to have to mod my inlets on my biocube if I want to get a couple.

Yeah I learned the hard way how small they are. Make sure to cover all you filter intakes. The have so much personality for their size though!

On another note I want to upgrade the filter, I don't think the aquaclear 20 is enough. I really like the aquaclear filters when it comes to HOBs. What do you guys think I should go up to? A 30 or bigger?

I have an ac50 on my edge with a red eye puffer in it. I think bigger is always better. Puffers are messy little guys.
