Out of the loop

Itís been about 4/5 years since Iíve had a tank. Luckily I held on to my cannister and regulator. But that is all I have.

I am looking to add a small tank back Iím pretty out of the loop as far as current equipment and whatís popular at the moment

If you could have a small tank (under 10g) that fit in this space, what would you go for?

Not looking to carpet or deal with high light stuff at the moment.

The space is 20in wide x 12 in deep

I really dig the full forest/overgrown look and itís way easier to do in a small tank.

I'd go with the Marineland 5 Gallon Portrait Glass LED tank. It's all in one, and fits that space perfectly.


20G long / Finnex Planted + / Marineland C-160 / Tunze Regulator / Fluval Bubble Counter / Cobalt Neo-Therm Heater / Koralia 240 / Rhinox Drop Checker

The Fluval Spec V is another option.


It's a very popular tank. There's a whole thread dedicated to the Spec V and I'm sure you'll find some ideas about how you might want to set it up.

Have you succumbed to the pleasure of Multiple Tank Syndrome? I feel your pain!
