    Mini Complete Tank?

    Any of you have experience with this aquarium?

    https://minicompletetank.com/product...-aquarium.html

    I'm a sucker for tiny tanks. Saw on ebay something similar had to buy. Going to may house maybe a pair of shrimps:-) for my office. Thinking about using marimo moss wrapped on a tiny piece of wood and planting small anubias and buce.

    Oh wow thats a cheap price. I've been wanting one for a while but they were $80 back when they first came out which is expensive for a tank the size of a soda can lol. Genius idea for the sump system and usb light

    Yeah not sure if the ebay one is the same Cunzo brand but I'm willing to see how it works. With the sump I can always modify it and slow down the flow. Can stuff sponge foam on overflow to protect shrimps. Gonna stick to easy plants that essentially will require no trimmings.

    Get one Kole- we can do "show & tell" :-)

    Word i have read is that they are available now through multiple factories with nearly identical build because they were never/properlypatented.

    I personally would only buy one from mini complete. I follow them on IG. But it's no different than someone saying they will only buy an ADA tank. Either way your risking something being shipped from China.

    Opae ula doesnt even need a filter or water changes. I have mine in vases and tanks over a year. No water changes just top off with RO water. Been a year now couple babies.
    My only concern with brackish water you might scratch the plastic tank? Saw they did mini saltwater setups so maybe its okay. Just me being paranoid.

    There are just as many salt as fresh setups with these tanks.

    Wow this is small! Quality seems decent. Sump is very simple but practical, probably just switch out two layers of foam down to one bigger piece. Will use one bigger foam, probably keep the filter pad portion for now.

    rough estimate for tank size and footprint
    5"x3"x3"H

    Gotta think about what I can put in here.
