I can't see the pictures. Is it the SC380?

If it is I have one and there are a ton of stocking options. There are a lot of Micro/Nano fish that don't need 10+ gallons but do quite well in five gallons. My tiny Dario Dario do great in their little Grreat Choice 2.5-gallon kingdom.

You'll love it Euro. I still have to find a place in my room for it tbh. Lol. I have a place in mind but that would mean I need to move my printer. Not sure where to put the printer....lol.

@ Russell it's this one: http://www.marineandreef.com/AquaTop...p/rat01083.htm
Those Dario Dario fish are awesome! I am still going back and forth between another betta or something else. These fish seem like a good option!

Lol @alecmerkel I so wish I could throw it away.
Unfortunately, my room pretty much is my office >.< I print all my papers for college from there. Maybe I'll put it underneath on a stand and that opens up more room on my desk. Ohhhh the struggle...

People forget that you can put more fish in the same space if you have Nano/Micro species.

In my eight I have a Betta, five Dario, 8 Sundadanio axelrodi, 8 Chili Rasbora and 5 Habrosus Cory. I do fish-in cycling and waited until the tank was cycled and had been stable for a month before adding the other fish. I started with the Habrosus because they are bottom dwellers so don't invade a Betta's territory. None of the fish above are top-dwellers; mostly bottom to high-middle.

I use Crypt Pygmaea and Micro Swords for carpet and they grow quite well without Excel or CO2.

At almost 18" long, that's awesome for micro/nano shoaling fish! I'm working on a 20 long right now, but most of the fish mentioned are ones I already had on my list! It will also be my first attempt at some live plants.

I'm not going to do a ton of different species, but want large groups. So, we could end up with similar tanks. Subscribing! I hope you have add much fun planning as I have been.

I'm learning as fast as I can!
My apologies, but brevity is not my forte.

@ Rennie Sky That's so awesome! You're right, we could very well end up having similar tanks which is so cool. They say, great minds think alike(: I'm still trying to decide on what fish to have lol. I'm so excited as well!!!
