    Hi gang!

    Excellent. I like the look of your tank.

    Looking at the photos, it is hard to believe it is only 2 gallons.

    Ya it's awesome. How big is that Mantis? He looks really big. But all the same the aquarium is really small so it's really hard to tell.


    Looks really nice and healthy. Great Cube!!!!
    Cheers,

    I agree. I've thought many times of setting up a nano at work, I just fear I wouldn't get any actual work done if I had a tank to stare at

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.

    I have a 20gallon tank on my desk at work....
    I never spend any time staring at the tank.

    I don't know how he got anywork done while setting up that tank.

    Visitior: I don't see him at as his desk.
    Secretary: Look underneath it.

    Visitor: Is he hiding?
    Secretary: No. He spends a lot of time under his desk. Something about balancing his parameters.
    Secretary mutters: He's such a geek.

    Thanks Mike. The mantis is a g. smithii and is two inches long (about full size I think). He is probably the only mantis that you could get away with in a tank this small but I am still planning on upgrading to a 10" or even 12" cube.
