Ok mine is saltwater but saw this and said what the hell. It's only been up about a month. There is a shrimp hiding in there and 2 hermit crabs and 2 snails. Been looking for a fish but being very careful because I don't have a lid on it at the moment and most of the smaller fish for saltwater are jumpers.
I have been wanting to buy a white SpecV for a reef setup. Did you keep the stock pump? What kind of filter media are you running?
