Very unorthodox way to setup a tank, at least from my knowledge and experience. But again, it worked for you and that's good. I'd say becareful about adding Red Fin and Rainbow Sharks. I had those when I first got into the hobby, they're cool to watch BUT when they get bigger they can become really aggressive and kill everything in your tank. Other than that, tank looks great! Keep an eye on your water parameters. Sine it's been about a week since you posted this thread, how is your tank holding up? Did it run into a bacteria bloom?
I know man, lot's of dumb things done here. But surprised it turned out fine. HAHA
Here's some update from week 2 to present (week #5):
9 tiger barbs, 5 mollies (still hoping to find time to go to buy the single red tail BS I am hoping to add)
- I added 3 more plants of which I don't know the name haha kinda look like Anubias, but has thinner and brighter colored leaves, what do you call them?
has not been well, base of the plant is continuously melting and coming off, despite new leaf growth on top. What's the deal with this one?
has been great, growing nicely, and 4 runners are growing their own blades now.
are growing (very slowly) new leaves, but the old ones doesn't look healthy; partially melting
is doing really well; fastest growers in my tank thus far
-Looking to add more vallisnerias since they seem to fare nicely to my tank
No idea about the ph, kh etc.. but still no water change since. I only add around a gallon or two of tap water every three days to supplement evaporation
4. Surprisingly, no algae or bacteria bloom since.
Got lucky here
5. I observed some algae growth on the glass when I was away for 8 days. (yes I left them for 8 days, just asked my brother to drop a small slice of frozen shrimp once a day) Easily cleaned with a magnetic glass cleaner.
Here are some photos from week #3 (I'll try take latest photos and post them soon)
