This is my Cunzo fully functional aquarium with sump.
Total water volume is .385 gallons!

All equipment arrived today (in one box) LOL

Stocking plans:
A couple micro brittle stars
Small astrea snail
Dwarf blue leg hermit
2 male amphipods
3-4 female amphipods
Pom Pom crab
Rasta Zoas
A mushroom (Superman maybe)
300-700 copepods (maybe more)
1 head of frogspawn if mine will start growing new heads in my other tank.

So, does anyone know how to tell which amphipods are male and female? :p

Nice! I actually have the page bookmarked for that exact tank, it's calling me. Does it just have one power cable or two? USB ended or not?

The pump has a USB plug and the light has one also. The light has 2 USB ports and the pump can plug to one of those so only 1 wall adapter is used.

Just glasses? Magnifying glass or microscope maybe.

I’m ready to get this little tank set up. I will mod it with a water level indicator before start up but that’ll just take a few minutes.

I’ve got a 120 gallon extra tank I am selling to make room for my work bench to be moved into the fish room. I plan to keep this little tank on the work bench so I can’t really get started stocking until I get things moved around first. Also, part of the move is a mantis shrimp tank build so I can get my mantis out of the Fluval Evo 5 into its forever home in his 20 gallon. I’ve got all of the supplies ready for it now also. Lots going onas soon as I get the big tank out of the way.

Press the buy it now button. Post a thread when you get it and tag me so I can follow. Such a cool little tank to tinker with.

I probably wouldn’t put any fish into this but the flaming prawn goby would be my choice if I did. I’ve been eyeing them for a while for my other tanks but hear how cryptic they are in even the smallest of tanks and are hardly ever seen.

I know this si wrong to say but our petco here gets those ora mandarin gobies in and they are like the size of a pea. I would definitely put one of those in there. if you don't have something eating the pods I bet the tank gets overrun with them quick since they multiply so fast.

Pod populations will self control based on available food. I think the problem with adding a pod eater would be keeping enough in the tank for it hunt all day.

are you going to use rubble and water from your DT for this? You have endless aquascaping options ;Joyful
Most everything including the stocking list is coming from my 30 gallon reef except for the zoas, Pom Pom crab, and mushroom. Everything else I’ve already got in tanks or laying around.

I ordered 40 pounds of rock rubble ($1/lb.) for my mantis tank build so I’ll pull some pieces from that to make a scape. Might make the scape and set it in my established reef for a while to seed with all the goodies.
