I'm shifting from my current 29g setup that takes up too much room in an apartment with a premium on space, to a smaller nano tank to fit on my desk, which is huge!
I'm gonna set up my post kinda weird, but i'll explain it. I'm gonna write the different facets of the aquarium, and the options that i'm looking at, followed by the approximate percentage of how sure i am that i want that option.
I'm thinking of 3 options, 2 prebuilt and 1 custom made
-2.5g prebuilt 50%
-2.5g custom 30%
-2g prebuilt 20%
I have eco-complete in all my tanks right now, so i have plenty to go around.
I have access to multiple types of rock, slate, and wood, but i think i'm pretty sure what i'm gonna use in this tank. (Pics to come eventually)
-Lace Rock and Manzanita 90%
I have a simple heater:
Is this enough? What should i do on the heating front?
I dunno exactly what my plan is here, but i'm thinking about the red sea nano
- DIY Filter 15%
- Suggestions??? 25%
Defaulting to DIY unless there is a very economical pressurized system for this size tank.
- DIY 60%
- Unknown pressurized 40%
I'm thinking of getting a spiral desklamp for this aquarium.
- Other suggestions?? 25%
Because of the small size of the tank, my fauna capabilities are low. I'm gonna list the percentages vs. not having the animal rather than having them compete against eachother.
-RCS/other Neocardinia 80%
-Rasboras (IIRC, there's a micro type) 30%
-Small Tetras 30%
I don't want to spend too much on this tank, so i'm gonna use some plants from my current tank.
-Rotala Indica 80%
-Rotala ?? (it's in my tank, but i forget the name, i'll post pics for an ID soon) 80%
This is a budget/size constrained tank. My budget is $100, but i think that most of that will go to fauna/flora. I am so very much welcome to ideas/suggestions/criticism/etc.
I'm gonna put a latest FTS below and replace it as i go along
