g0nk Posted March 28 Share Posted March 28 Greetings! This is my first real post here, but I wanted to ask for advice on stocking ideas! I have a 20H tank and this will be my first planted tank. I just placed an order for a crapton of plants from Co-Op, and I'll get those all planted and will season the tank before getting any actual fish put in. One step at a time of course! But, I was curious as to what you all think of my idea for what I'd like to stock once I am ready to populate the tank. Also, any suggestions on online shops for live fish (Aqua huna I know of, any others?) I only have chain stores around me and after a quick trip around town to take a look, I wouldn't buy anything from any of them.. Such a poor display around me. Anyway... Here's what I am "thinking" of how I would like to stock the tank once ready: Feature Fish: Either 2-3 Guppies, or a Betta. Not sure which.. Leaning towards Guppies though. Cleanup Crew: Either 6 Panda or Pigmy Corydoras or 6 Kuhli Loaches, with a batch of about 10 cherry shrimp and some snails? (I really like rabbit snails) Maybe a small school of about 10 neon tetras? I am unsure about numbers, so that's why I am asking for advice. The tank will be heavily planted, heated to about 78-80, and using a medium Co-Op sponge filer, with a Co-Op 24" Easy Plant Light. Hardscape I have going in, is a few pieces of driftwood, some Fluval Aquasoil, and tiny pea gravel, and Dragonstone. Plants I have coming from Co-Op are: Amazon Sword for background plants, Anubias petite and Tropica Crypts for mid plants, and dwarf high grass for foreground carpet. No CO2 injection yet, but have Easy Green on the way too. Thank you all so much for reading though all this! :) 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
