I saw one of these tanks on the king of DIY like 2 months ago. I believe it was even smaller.

It's the exact same tank as the one Joey has

I have a pico tank with Opae ulna "supershrimp." It started life as a TLC chamber (sorry no picts, it's still new and covered in algae right now). I keep it mostly covered and I don't have an issue with evaporation. I keep it brackish for these guys and, once I'm happy with it, it will go on my desk at work.

 

If you're going full salt you can try Opae ulna - I'm not sure how they do in that - or I'll second the Pederson's. I have a couple in my nano and they're fun to watch and they take food from my fingers at dinner time.

 

Following and looking forward to seeing what you do with it.

So dam cute. I would try a temporary back ground like construction paper to see how it looks. A bright yellow sun coral would make a wonderful center piece. Definitely following.

How about some of those opae ulna or whatever they are called super shrimp? I believe they can he acclimated to full salt and live 20 years! May have to pick coral that can't eat them though...aka no big lps mouths.

I believe full salt is known to shorten their lifespans but they certainly are an ideal size for this tank.  I love my little group of Opae ula.

 

I would also suggest a Pederson's shrimp and maybe pom pom crab.  The Pederson's will be out in the open and fun to watch.  Most pom pom crabs hide a lot but not all of them.  Some are like my Shelby and will eat other things... :unsure:

She was certainly a very unique pom pom crab...

 

I think I'm afraid to name mine now because of her! :lol:

Idea: Mini maxi or RFA as centerpiece with pedersons shrimp hosting.

I think a nem would have to drape the edges outside the tank! :lol:

Don’t they have an optional heater you can purchase with it? I thought I saw that.

they do , but I didn't buy it . The one I bought will work, but the longer one would work better over the round one.

Do you even need a heater between the pump and light? If anything I'd worth about it getting to warm. 

I keep my house at 68* so I will most likely need one.
