Tiny tank question
I just purchased an 8" cube tank (8x8x8) (~2 gal)
that is made out of plexiglass/acrylic. I am
planning on installing one AHS 13w CF fixtures over
it, and injecting it with compressed CO2. I have not
planned on filtering or heating, and was only going
to keep a few ghost shrimp, an otto and maybe 2-3
white clouds. Should I plan on some kind of micro-
pump for circulation, or would it be okay with out it?
My questions are: anyone have experience with tiny
tanks like this? If so, is 13w of CF too much or
workable? Also, does anyone have any ideas or
suggestions as to how I should mount the light above
the tank? (It will have a 7.5" Miro reflector) The
tank has a sliding piece of plexi that fits into
slots at the top, and I am not sure wether to use it,
or go open-topped and suspend the light over the
tank. (I would think the heat might melt it)
Suggestions / comments appreciated!
In windy and cold SE PA!
