I have always like the Dutch designs. Nothing wrong with the other styles but it seems to me that the Dutch styles lends itself to less rebuilds.

Yup. Hopefully everything will work out for me.

Anyone think I should use some Manzy to separate different groups of stems?

Edit- got rid of java fern and the smaller amazon. Anyone wanna buy an anubias or some fissidens and Xmas moss?


Btw I'm gonna keep a little log here as to what I need to add to this tank. Feel free to comment/suggest/critique etc.

Things to add/wish list
  • 4 of each: Coralife 6700K and Colormax Bulbs
  • Fluval Plant Stratum(17.6lb)
  • Manzy?
  • Plants on Plant list.
  • Dozen ottos
  • Dozen amanos
  • 30 harlequins
  • 6-7 roselines(muahaha)
  • Nice school of pygmies?

All of this of course will start to occur after I get my 11.4g stocked and have
on autopilot.
And they go in order of priority.

Plecos died.... columnaris????


Also, does anyone thunk it's a good idea to use Manzy to separate different sections of stems in a dutch? Or would that only work when you have less species of stems?

Some plecos are very specific with water parameters. I got some L183's from Bsmith not too long ago and lost 3 of them because of pH fluctuations due to water changes. What type of pleco was that? Usually regular bristlenose plecos are very hardy compared to other more exotic species.

You can use all the driftwood you please. It's up to you to make it look good! haha

It was a regular BNP. But I had gasses them on accident the day before. Could that be the case?

Maybe when things look good? Haha. Although things are starting to perk up now that I'm dosing EI. Stems are looking much thicker with longer stems. Will be selling some in the SnS soon since I need the extra $$ for my stem list!
