55l nano

Post by bertie 83 » Tue Dec 08, 2015 9:35 pm

Picking up one of these tomorrow for a project for me and the wife, we love combined projects. My sump is to the side behind my maintank so implanting on building this in to the stand, like a window if that makes sense. It will be a field tank with a couple of shrimp and a hermit as they are now not permitted in main tank. Any ideas on a single interesting fish I can house in there as I am lost?
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

Was going to recommend this damsel but I can't remember the name or if it'd get too big for your tank

Not really a fan of damsels if I'm honest. Want something a bit different. You know, unusual

There are some really nice small gobies like the yassa hassa. Not sure outside of those.

Too small for a peacock but you can get a small spearer like mine :)

Want to put shrimp and hermits in there too, I fear a mantis might make short work of them. I'm just awkward aren't I?

So this is it. Hoping to start the stand build tomorrow. Still unsure of lighting. Will start a tank build thread as soon as I know what I'm doing lol

No that's why I said a spearer! Smashers eat snails and crabs, spearers eat fish
