Help with Killifish for Spec V
I'm interested in keeping a pair of Killies in a nano species tank, along with some shrimp. I'm finding that researching them is somewhat difficult. Since I'm talking about a 5 gallon nano, I'm looking for suggestions of a small species. They are all so beautiful, I think I could be happy with just about any that fit the environment I can provide. I'm willing to supply live or frozen food if needed, but would prefer simpler feeding if possible.
Here are some specs of the tank. I will be setting it up and cycling it in the next week or two.
Fluval Spec V (a new one with the better light)
EcoComplete substrate (mix some pool or blasting sand in?)
Paintball CO2, dual stage regulator with solenoid
Ferts: Seachem Flourish, will add others if a deficiency is detected
Plants: Dwarf Hairgrass, Anubias nana Petite, maybe Glossostigma elatinoides
I would really appreciate any suggestions you might have. Please feel free to critique my plans, or give any other sort of feedback. Thanks for reading!
