That wave maker is sick! Does it mount magnetically?
I can't wait to see this come together!

Some C. Parva around the front of those rocks and maybe some C. Walkeri 'Lutea' or C. Wendtii 'Red' in the back tucked around them would look awesome! Great rocks, Hurry up and get that tank, Subscribed!

Thanks! Yes, the mp10 transmits energy through the glass via magnets, similar to an electric toothbrush charger.
Those crypt suggestions sound good, but instead of the parva, I might put some eleocharis 'belem' in the tank as a foreground with some root tabs, which would stick to my asia/ thailand biotope, which I have almost settled on.

I was actually just researching possible shrimp when I decided to check back in haha
So far I've found that the orange halo shrimp and black forest shrimp, which look very cool. Do you know of any other shrimp that are native to SE Asia/ Thailand?
EDIT: Umm, CBS? It would be great if they are native to this area, because I already have a bunch of babies that need a bigger tank I think I'm pretty sold on this SE Asia biotope now.

Yeah, I thought about bamboo shrimp as well, or other filter shrimp. I'll have to look into native filter feeding shrimp of Thailand, if there are any.

there has to be something, I think that a filter feeding shrimp would be better suited to this scape than a neocardinia or cardinia simply because of their ability to acquire food through current...

enjoy your research

This is a very cool white cloud mountain minnow biotope tank (southeast asia) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7JjRL...eature=related
Too bad they come from slow to moderate current streams, though, In nature moderate could mean high flow in the aquarium. I might get them anyway instead of zebra danios, which are from Bangladesh anyway. Any thoughts?

Yes they are, but I've read conflicting information on whether they like high flow or not. If I hear one person who has kept them on here say that they do, I'm getting them lol. I used to have a bunch, but I never experimented with flow.
I just started a thread about it here

Thanks for the link Craig, though some of the information about color morphs is out-dated. But that has nothing to do with water flow haha.

lol, I'm ordering the pump today
I'll have some time to play with it on different tanks before I get this tank ready for it.
