OceanDream...lots of folks keep small tanks with success.We have a forum dedicated to them...check out the "Nano Forum"... folks over there can offer lots of experience and advice.But why settle for just LS macro algaes and "bugs"? Look into the little nanos some of the members here keep...they have success keeping much more diversity.
By the way I like the pic in your avatar...do you happen to have a full size version or maybe know where I can locate a full size version?
I just want something neat, that isnt "high maintenance." I have seen some very pretty nano tanks, but they seem pricey and "hard" (for lack of a better word ).
I like my avatar too, thanks.
Full size isn't big enough to fit a desktop, but here's a link to it http://www.steib.org/multimedia/PICS...SY/dolphin.jpg
