  1. I keep many small aquariums in my apartment, mostly Walstad-style, with organic soil from a local composting spot. I enjoy running really stable ecosystems. These photos don't show much of the fish and shrimp. I also keep some outdoor tubs here in Vermont. Cheers, Jason
  2. I wanted to try and do a blackwater community tank just because I haven't seen too many videos on it. I saw someone local was selling a betta mahachai pair and I already was planning on getting some chili rasboras and I have 3 black venezulan corydoras. I was thinking of doing a blackwater setup with fluval stratum, capped with sand, some plants, and sponge filter. Probably going to have lots of driftwood and possibly some river rocks. Would a pair of betta mahachai, 10 chili rasboras, and 3 black venezualn corydoras be good in a 20 gallon?
  3. Heyo! So I'm currently in the process of starting a 20G Blackwater Tank (It's a UNS 60U if this helps with dimensions and things like that) It's 23.6in L x 14.2in W x 14.2in H. Just like the title says, I'm aiming for the PH to be about 5.0-5.5 which is to suit the best needs for the stocking I've got so far on a list and I'm 100% intending on keeping. So I'm looking for a bottom dwelling/scavenger species and maybe a top dwelling if I could fit them in. all suggestions are welcome! Current list so far: -4 Tweediei Licorice Gouramis (parosphromenus tweediei) (going to be a pair after I figure out which ones pair off once they age a bit more) 7-8 Dwarf Glass Fish (GYMNOCHANDA PLOEGI) Ideas I have: -6-7 Marble Hatchet Fish -4 Dwarf Anchor cats or 6 Pygmy Cories of some species I'm undecided on yet Plants: Salvinia Natans, Java Fern Windelov, Water Lettuce (temporary), and a Crypt or 2 of some species.
  4. Hello! I have a 10g blackwater with a king betta and 4 neon tetras. In my 75g, I have dwarf gourami's and a sorority of female bettas. I was wondering, can I add a few sparkling gouramis to my 10g blackwater? If I needed to I would put the tetras into my 75g. Thanks!
  5. Gonna start a black water tank with a bunch of tetras. Any one have any experience? My water is about 8.0 PH and liquid rock out of the tap.
  6. I plan to rebuild my 20 gallon tank. I finished it several years ago before I had a lot of planted tank knowledge, and it's showing. Lots of different types of algae, difficult to clean in most spots, and in general not very pretty to look at. The amazon sword propagates like crazy in the water column. I have already transferred ~8 pounds of it to other tanks or back to my local fish store! It didn't help that the tank was next to a window (I know, very dumb idea). I'm tired of looking at its current configuration after a few years, so I want to give this tank a proper glow-up! Right now, I am keeping neon and ember tetras (~15 total), 2 panda corydoras, 2 Schwartz's catfish, and a male crown betta (he had to be rescued from a leaking tank, but he was doing so well in the community that I kept him in!). Leave your plant, hardscape, substrate, etc. suggestions below (visuals would be cool too!). The only restriction to keep in mind is that I will not be using a CO2 setup. The most liked/upvoted idea after a week (09/20/2020) will be chosen! I will share pictures of the final result once I can collect the materials and put it all together. I am a big fan of the jungle look, but any setup style is welcome!
  7. I added the first fish to the tank. Three Vin Rio Tetras. I'm hoping to get more when my LFS can. It's a 75 gallon tank and has been seasoning since the beginning of May. I'm planning to add more botanicals back in to darken the water again. Next up out of QT will be a group of Lemon Tetras.
