Long time no see. I haven't been on the forum much besides looking at what's for sale.
The cory experiment was a success......until I brought the tanks home and they all suffocated themselves against the sponge...sad day.
Anyways I would go with the aquasoil.....I don't know what it is with Tigers but they just don't like anything but. Any attempt without the semi lowish pH just gives them bacterial problems sometime in the future. 2 or 3 vendors have just told me go acidic and save the trouble later on. I'm breeding OEBT pretty easily in Azoo. I would probably shoot for somewhere like pH 6.5. Can't wait to see this tank......I'm gonna get one when I settle down after I graduate.
Looks like once again we have the save taste in tanks.
