unusual small tank stocking
Hi! I have a 2.5 gallon that i'm thinking of setting up, trying to decide between a fresh and salt water setup. i've done freshwater before and i don't want to do another tank with guppies or platies or the like, i want to do something different if i go freshwater. does anyone have any suggestions?
planted with shrimp ??
i think that would look fantastic.
Black background, red cherry shrimp and lots of plants. :-)
i tend to kill plants of the aquatic kind(get me outside and i do fine, but i have no green thumb under water :( )
have you ever used silk plants,i have used them in the past,
and found i liked the way they moved in the current.
and the best thing is you don't need extra lights. :)
i've found three things so far that i kinda like the idea of-
one really little(ie dwarf, 2.5in>) cichlid
a 'lobster'(aren't they really just crayfish?)
not really for that size of tank to be honest with you.
None of those will work in a 2.5 gallon. There's simply not enough room for a freshwater lobster or a dwarf gourami. There's also not enough room for a dwarf cichlid in addition to that small a water volume being just too unstable for them. At that size you're really looking at a betta or shrimp.
