5 Gallon Marineland Eclipse.

I have a little fish tank just collecting dust. Is it too small for a nano. Currently I have a 135g FOWLR.

It's too small for a fish, but you could do a cool sexy shrimp tank with corals maybe.

I like where you're going with this bg! What lighting? Also would the filter that's on it work?

Yeah filter is fine since you won't have a serious bioload. Look at low power led pendant lights maybe?

Ok thx, how many shrimp do you guys think I can stock? I was thinking 8-10 lbs of sand and a nice small l/r arrangement. maybe 2/3 blue hermits?

I also like the harlequin. But I know their diets might introduce a large biolode... Hmmm, now I have to persuade my wife into letting me set up another tank. She says my time is too consumed with my 135g dt and my 20g qt... Lol
