After finding a fluval spec v for 40$ i figured i had to do it, and my desk needed something for me to look at when i got sick of drafting


So for equipment i have:

Preset heater
2x Vertex illumilux fixture
hk nano
upgraded return pump
hydroton to replace the sponge


As for livestock go

2 nassarius snails
1 cowrie (havent seen it since i put it in the tank)
Long nose hawk fish (temporary resident)
yasha gobie
and i might throw in my clown gobie once the long nose hawk outgrows the tank



tank is a bit green as i just had some algae problems but its slowly going away




gets a gatorade bottle sized water change every time i go to the fish store (im lazy and dont like mixing salt)

update:
battling a bit of cyano but im hoping that adding an mp10 will help a bit, added some rock flowers from my other tank and a few zoas, my nice red planet mini colony started to stn so i moved it to another tank but everythign else is doing fine

added a ato using a vertex vessel for a resevoir
i did a 3gal water change yesterday in an attempt to destroy the cyano but it has gotten worse so i will be getting more aggressive with water changes

Love it! What is the actual size of the tank?

I'm a drafter as well, and even though I have a 180G Reef tank 10ft from my desk at work, I would still love to have a 5-10G Nano on my desk to stare into when I get bored of sketching lines. :lol:

Nice tank. I've often thought of stacking ADA tanks somehow to create a waterfall effect with a shallow lagoon at the bottom and maybe some mangroves somewhere in one of the tanks for display.
