SandBkeeper Posted February 1 Share Posted February 1 Hi all, I've decided to take down my 30ish gal (it's the footprint of a 25 gal but taller, about 27.5 gallons of water) and turn it into an aquascape/community/display tank. It's currently a quarantine/spare tank with 4 bolivian rams that will be moving out in a couple of weeks. Here is a picture of my idea: If you can't read my terrible handwriting, here's basically what's going on Plants - Amazon sword (I already have a huge amazon sword in this tank currently) - Jungle val for the background plant - bacopa caroliniana - Alternanthera Reineckii (the red plant in the front) - Some kind of grass plant (right now I'm leaning towards dwarf sag) - Some species of Rotala Substrate - I already have a bag of aquasoil and sand, I just need to wash the sand Should I separate the aquasoil and sand? If so how would you recommend to do that? I thought about using mesh bags like MD fish tanks, what are your opinions on that? Stocking - 10 ish black neon tetras -4-6 forktail rainbow fish -2 honey gouramis - 4-6 panda cories - mystery snail/amano shrimp/clean-up crew I'm not too sure about panda cories, I've always had bad luck with cories (11/12 slate cories dying and 5/8 sterbai cories). Are there any other bottom dwelling fish you would recommend for this tank? Equipment The tank is pretty much set up, it's got a matten filter, a plant light, and a heater. What are your thoughts in general with this tank idea? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
