Well I plan to have them in a larger tank but right now I might be moving within a month or so, and I am still looking for a cheap used tank I can find. I orginally had them in my 20 high with 4 other glo fish but they were being picked on and attacked from my tetra's and the larger glofish. So I have them in the fluval spec nano at the moment since a deal to sell that tank fell through. I do test the water everyday and do partial water changes everyday and so far I have kept the water quality really well. The pet store owner near me was astonished to see that my 2 gallon tank that has been set up only a week, has perfect ratings for nitrites, nitrates, amonia and ph. Its as if the tank is cycled. I will say this, I wish Fluval made the spec nano style tank larger as I love the look of it, love the filtration on this tank, but wish it had a real hood instead of a cheap plastic top and better dimensions.
