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.

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.

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.

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.
