A Nano nano tank


My Aunt wants me to set up one of these for her.



It is only 7" x 7" x 6" what kind of fish can you keep in something this small? It was only $26 with a power compact flouresent light and filter that works suprisingly nice. We put in 3 Neon Tetras but the currect seems to be too much for them. Can Mollies or Platties take a small enviornment?

My main concern is if they decide to commit suicide Any cover?

I wouldn't even keep a betta in there. I won't keep bettas (or any other fish) in under a 5g. Guess that is just my personal preference. What would be cool is if it was just planted or a small little live rock salt setup. That is what I have seen most people do.

I have a betta in mine. That little filter is really good. Endler's would work well in there too or perhaps a couple dwarf frogs.

That filter is great, the tank looks too small. I have a 2.5 with that filter and a few endler's and they love it. Another concern with that tank is keeping it heated.

Why not try some shrimp and snails?
I'm raising baby platys in my deco art tank,
and it serves that purpose, but once they're grown
I think I'm going to try snails.

There are a lot of things I'm sure you could put in there
that don't move a lot.

White cloud minnows?

I have a few of these tanks, and theres no way I'd put anything in other than something like a single shrimp.

And you have "several" then with single shrimps in them?

I saw one of these at a LFS with a mini reef in it. It looked unbelievably cool. One little (.5") clownfish, anenomes/corals, & live rock.

Tee,

I have one of these. On mine, you can reduce the flow of the filter.

God, that above tank, is freaking cool.

What is in that? What kind of substrate? Is that live rock, or is that coral? What is the diff between live rock and coral? Saltwater seems so complicated!
