1Sarah's 2.6g Nano
I couldn't resist this cute little modern looking cube by Top Fin. It comes with an internal filter and an led light for $50 at Petsmart. I've been looking for a little nano for a while but nothing decent was coming up on local online classifieds so I finally went and picked this up.
I stole a bit of biomax and sponge from my 10g and set this up yesterday. My CBS will be going in this little tank and hopefully they'll finally have some babies for me. I'm waiting to put them in until I pick up a heater... stupid me forgot one. For now adding 1 drop off ammonia a day to feed the bb. I'll text params before adding the shrimp of course.
Substrate is fluval plant stratum, plants are water wisteria, a small crypt wendtii red and some Christmas moss.
I had to turn the output arm toward the glass or the tank was a swirling vortex of doom! That little filter has some power!
Here it is:

Oh sorry guys I should have specified, CBS are my 3 crystal black shrimp. They reside in my 10g and seem OK but one of them had eggs but dropped them. I'm thinking it could have been due to stress from living with fish so I'll see if they'll be successful in this little tank :).Don't poke the crazy

Right yeah sorry I've heard them called both. Maybe some day I'll get some expensive shrimp but these are good for now till I get some experience with them breeding.Don't poke the crazy
