I have a 3 gallon betta tank at work. I'd like to get a five gallon but I don't really have room for that. It is very relaxing to watch Bari swim around!

45g soon to be community tank (houses Endler guppies at the moment but will be selling those soon)
6g Endler tank

Fluval Edge is a great office tank - the bosses and IT guys worry much less when they can't see any water flow.

Usually in a large company cubicle type setting, there is a big nono for things being "on" while you are not at your cube. To overcome this I did a Walstad shrimp bowl that does not have any electrical heating or filtration, just the light to make the plants grow. You can see the journal in my sig. I turn the light on when I get here and off when I leave, that way no one can come by, see it as a fire hazard and confiscate it... usually to be repurposed themselves...

I have a 10g community tank and 2.5g betta bowl at work. I stole a garbage can from an empty area, cleaned it and hid it for water changes.

See that is why you become your own boss so you can settle with a 2000 gallon nano with no issues at all
