I was thinking less than 10 gal. Just to do a a small tank with shrimp or something. Just didn't want to spend a lot on it. Wanted to take my Belem out of my current tank and do an iwagumi.

I'm not opposed to running co2, perhaps the small fluval unit. I think they actually have a setup that includes the co2. Just wasn't sure about the lighting:)

Anyone own that particular set-up?
