Wiener's Spec 5 Nano **Pic's**
 
So, I am selling off my 2.3 Deep Blue set up and I jumped into this. I opened it and my aquascaping just fell into place. It was really easy....
Would like to add some fish. Waddya suggest? I have a 175g with all SA cichlids. I am a little unfamiliar with the smaller guys. Livestock is as follows: 10 RCS, 3 Amano's, snail, and an otto.

Thanks....suggest any fish? I dont like guppies, but I saw some reallcool set ups at my LFS with guppies. Very nice.

I'm going to be adding chili rasboras and hasbrosus cories to my Spec V. I have plenty of the cories in another tank and I'm just waiting to see if my LFS can get the rasboras - maybe next week.

How many? Sounds like a pretty cool idea.

I do like the clean minimalist look very attractive!

I am going to add something with some height to the left corner. Possibly val or something of that nature.

Too bad you sold off your DBP, but this is starting off well. I saw it in the low tech section, but I didn't know it was your only tank.

I should have realized when I saw the DW tho.

:proud: Looks pretty cool!

I had a 150 reef and I still havea 150g south american set up with some pretty big geo's. So, I sold off my reef because it became way too time consuming and I still have my 150 and now the spec 5. Ive learned over the past ten years that too many tanks can cause a loss of love for the hobby. At one time I had 8 tanks going and it became a job and no longer was my hobby. So, Ive learned to keep it to a minimum and put everything into what you have. My 150 has been running for ten years, so there is very little maintenance with it. I am hoping to jump into the nano end and enjoy my plants. Would like to add some Co2, though not sure if I need it in a 5g.

Added some neons & white clouds. Prolly gonna have to rehome them to my other tank down the road. Also, I added some Co2.
