Raftlife's 2.2 Gallon Office Cube


Some killifish will mow down your shrimp population. It depends on which one you get. Just make sure you read up on them before buying. I'm with MABJ on the neos. They're very hardy and tolerant of different parameters. How about rasboras?

I have clown panchax also known aka rovcket panchax or killifish aka clown killfish. They r living with adult shrimps n always ignore them, no baby shrp pfor me as well but they may munch on them if its not heavily planted. If u r not planning to breed shrimps then they r a good choice. They are surface dwellers n mostly spend their time playing with each other.really awesome fish.

least killifish or Heterandria formosa are not true killifish and are small! my largest female is about the size of adult neo.

smallest live bearers in north america maybe world. nice sturdy nano tank fish!

Smallest livebearer in the world. Smallest fish indigenous to the US.
7th smallest fish in the world.

Great fish, mostly safe with shrimp. Just don't expect the shrimp to breed.

I still recommend a neo colony.

Sorry for the lack of updates - work got pretty busy and I didn't give this tank much attention for the past two weeks.

Anyway, I added some HC, CRS, and Endlers Livebearers. I still haven't gotten around to bringing a camera into the office, but the tank is actually looking quite nice with the new light.

I got the aquasoil but I really don't have the time or energy to swap out the gravel at my office. Getting one substrate washed, strained, and settled was already an achievement and I'm just not going to bother.

I haven't set up my CO2 yet, and I'm sure I'll get around to that just as soon as I get another moment to breathe during the workweek...





Any suggestions for how to fill out the left side? I was thinking more HC or micro swords since I have this kickass light now

Wondering how that light worked for you on this small tank.
