I saw this little 12 gallon nano-cube yesterday at my lfs
, and I'm curious if anyone has any comments about them? To date, I've always stuck with fw
because I live in a cramped apartment and can get by with "smaller" tanks, but this size would be great. Basically, all I've ever wanted was a true percula and a shrimp (and an anemone, but I hear they don't do well in any aquariums, even with expert care :-(). With some liverock and livesand, would these do alright in that small of an aquarium?
Some extra considerations: (1). I don't have central heating/air, so the temperature in here is fairly inconsistent; my 30 and 20long fluctuate about +-4 degrees or so over a period of about 8 hours, so the 12 gallon might feel the effects a bit more.
(2). I've never done a sw
(3). The nano-cube has a built-in filter for circulation and if it breaks, I think I'm just boned on that.
Don't be afraid to tell me that given my situation, I shouldn't go the sw
route; I'd rather have people be honest than make some fish suffer. And if all else fails, I'll set up a serious sw
tank when I graduate and (hopefully) have a house
