Well, my little 5G on my desk has had me longing for more room almost from day one. I was considering getting something in the 30-40 gallon range, but I have a tiny house and something like that would only fit in my bedroom.
I actually really like the idea of a serene tank in my bedroom, something with moonlights, but it seems like a shame that I wouldn't see as much of it.
I was at the LFS
yesterday picking up some adorable orange shrimp for my 5G and I took a browse through the tanks.
They had an Aqueon 13 gallon widescreen on a lovely stand. That's a lot smaller than I was planning to go - but it was really elegant looking and I have the perfect spot for it in my living room. (I work from home and see clients at home so I love the idea of making my living room / office seem even more "professional" and the addition of tanks might do that.)
I realize 13g doesn't give me a ton of room to work with, but it seems like I could come up with an elegant scape with some delicate wood and well placed plants.
As for fish, a small school of rasboras would probably work... and maybe something that stays on the bottom of the tank. Maybe even one centerpiece fish like a betta?
I've been researching like mad but I can't find much info on these tanks. I haven't found any actual reviews and only a couple stocking questions and unboxings on youtube.
All thoughts are greatly appreciated and who knows, maybe this can turn into my first build thread!
