Looks really good!

I thought about having a 5 gallon at my desk at work ... but too many unknowns. They turn off the heat/air conditioning after hours and on weekends so I've no idea what the building temperature is like throughout the year. I would be worried that it gets quite hot on the weekends during summer.

How quiet is that internal filter?

well as it turns out I already started a thread about it but only one or two people have been responding. Obviously new opinions are welcome!

Thanks again for all the comments. I was thinking about adding a diy c02 but i think that might be taking it too far LOL
I didn't know they got that big hmmm nor did I know they self clone!

Yeah I don't think you will need any C02 in there. If you see algae just cut back on the light. You are inspiring me to want to get a work tank now lol

Have you though about Dwarf Sag or something like that. It would look nice in that tank as it stays decently short so you can really work with it.

I was going to put a betta in a 5 gallon but leaving a heater on over the weekend un attended was asking for trouble. Im going to put a sign on the tank saying "please dont clean my table with chemicals" as i know the cleaners would probably get something in the tank.

The filter is really quiet although i just got a Hagen mini elite underwater filter for a c02 diffuser at home and i think im going to get one for this tank. Its basically a powerhead and for its size it packs a punch !

Yes they are all born female and follow the exact patterns from the mother, so they are identical. The self cloning part still gets me baffled.

I was thinking of maybe carpeting the floor with HC or something similar, i used Sag on the left side to cover the filter. I want a planted tank but not so you cant see the crayfish. so something small and compact maybe addded in time.
