Picked up a new in box Spec ii last night off craigslist.
Not a bad find for the $ i don't think.
First nano tank and first post in this section of the forum
Looking forward to the journey on this one.
got it setup last night:
Scooped water out of the 55g to fill.
Pulled a small handful of my seachem matrix of the canister to fill the pockets of the sponge.
Added a golfball size of flame moss and a small ceramic shrimp pyramid.
Also scooped up 4 RCS to inhabit until I figure out the long term plan for the tank.
Substrate? Not sure if I will do true root plants may just be moss/anubis/floaters so may go with sand ?
Fauna? Not sure if i can do anything beyond shrimp? super nano fish ?
mods: already plugs the lower filter hole
looking for a better way to layer the media from the overflow down to the bottom
Heater? needed ?
