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.
How quiet is that internal filter?
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.
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
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 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.
