I would put maybe five schools of different tetras for color and variety!
Thx ya'll.

I am not too sure on what i plan to stock this tank with.

Lyzza, that sounds like it would look pretty interesting. Good idea. Ill think about that.

Just imo I would stick with fewer schools, since most fish don't school that tightly in a tank you get more of a jelly bean effect, which is cool if you like it, but I find it a little cluttered.

It will look cool no matter though

Looks awesome can't wait to see it grow, blyxa is a beauty.

Don't forget to feed the otos when the algae is gone, they are bottemless pits, no joking, mine eat all day everyday.

thx rusty, yeah i have had otos before. i actually offered then an algae pellet a few days ago and they didnt touch it. And the funny thing is that i dont see much algae in the tank atm either.

Ill offer them zucchini soon as well.

actually, 11 made alive. 2 died the first day. And now i can only account for 2 of them. I cant say that its the same 2 that ikeep seeing but...

Then again, they are about 1/4 inch in length, living on about 12 sq ft of floor space in a 125 gallon water column, so....

thx H4n and you too!

Very nice! will that mesh on the fiss carpet deteriorate or will it just be there until you get the itch to re-due everything?
