1 Gallon BBG Desktop Tank (56 k warning)

I just set this up yesterday, I used the water from another tank. So far it has 2 BBGs, and one jewel cichlid fry (about 1/3 cm long) that got sucked up when I got the water. Here are some pics

bumble bee gobies. Im planning on getting on getting one more, and then maybe a few ghost shrimp. If the ghost shrimp survive, I might get cherries instead and feed the ghosts to my jewel cichlids.

is the remedy for stupidity.

It's not the size of the tank, but how you use it.

not yet, the water they gave me at the store was fresh and Im trying to find a way to convert it w/o killing the fish or causing too much stress to them. But I am aware that they are brackish fish and should be in a brackish environment, which they will be as soon as possible.
