5 Gal NANO Plans
I think I am going to delve into salt water.
I found a local store that only deals in marine supplies and fish. I went in to do some trading with him on some light equipment I had since it was for salt water and I have fresh.
He was willing to trade me for a pico tank (full set up), water, sand, rock, mushrooms, and some inverts for 50.00 and my equipment. I did not do it. I wanted to check with you guys first.
While I was there I talked to this guy that told me he saw a setup with 2 small tanks one being a sump. The guy made a custom cabinet for it.
I did a little research and came up with the below drawing.
I would like this to be my summer project.
I think I could get two 5 Gal glass tanks and two glass tops for my equipment on trade now. I might be able to get a pump for the sump also.
I want to have some coral, mushrooms, and shrimp.
Do you think this will work? Also what size pumps and pipe size do you suggest?
If you think this looks like trouble please let me know.
I will continue to read the posts on the forum but wanted to get your thoughts before I jump in.
