I picked up this little tank at a yard sale for 5 bucks last weekend.
It's about 7" x 7" x 8" tall, which seems to work out to about one and a half gallons.
This will be my smallest tank ever.
I will want to plant it out and am wondering about a few things...
It came with a small air pump and some kind of UGF (under gravel filter), I don't know much about UGF's having HOB's (hang on back filter) on all my other tanks.
I was thinking about tossing the UGF as I don't think I even have all of it.
Theres just a grid thing for the bottom with a 1/2 inch diameter tube coming up from it.
I was thinking of just using the air pump with an air stone.
It has a hood that will take a screw in bulb, so I thought I would use a 10 watt 6500k compact fluorescent bulb, would this be too much light?
I realize I'll have to use smaller scale plants, any suggestions on plants?
I was thinking about running it without a heater, so I'm thinking of putting in White Cloud Mountain Minnows. How many can I put in a tank this small?
Are there any other fish you would recommend?
Can I put a bottom feeder in with out a heater? If so what kind?
I'm sure I'll come up with some more questions, but I'll leave it at these for now.
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
