Nerdariostomp's 12g long wild tank (getting it together, need advice)

Staurogyne Porto velho has taken off and some pennywort is floating. Got a school of 12 borora maculatus for now and we'll add some others once they're around locally.


Also I've been pretty busy at home hahaha. Some tanks for plant grow out and for keeping new species. Betta albimarginata, some shelldweller multis, marbled longfin bristle nose pleco, RCS, killifish and either the kribensis or the guppies/endlers are coming down here.

Yes they are. Both were sold as nana petite but one is much smaller and grown better. I bought some more this weekend too which is a lot like the smaller variety in here.

Picked up some more chillis for a total of 19 and a school of 10 Pygmy Cory cats. My friend threw in a few of his blueberry shrimp as well so we'll see how things balance out. Everyone's getting along splendidly.

Thanks! It's definitely going to look a million times better once the staurogyne fills in. Honestly I like how this variety carpets a lot more than the staurogyne repens

Well, time for an update. Killed some cyano bacteria and the staurogyne has filled in very well. Mini pellia has started to grow too All 19 rasbora and nano cory are still hanging in as well as 3 "blueberry" shrimp and an assortment of snails

Thanks! It definitely has helped these plants tremendously and depending on the setup you choose it can be fairly affordable

Love it, so lush & green! I'm going to have to get one of these tanks.. every one I see I fall head over heels for.

I'm in Ohio as well, but Columbus. Not too fond of our LFS's... got anything better there in Newark?

Unfortunately Aquarium Adventure is about as good as it gets in terms of the LFS in Columbus. They have sales periodically that make their plant/livestock prices more bearable but they have the best selection.

The CAFE club (columbus area fish enthusiasts) has been the best thing for me though and I've met a lot of really awesome people through the club and found a lot of great plants and fish species and info. Check it out if you get a chance.

Yeah I should have put "added" duckweed. I forget how they came in but they're in the long arduous process of eviction now

yeah what i meant is it's SO difficult to get rid of them all but they do add a nice touch to your tank, just a pain in the butt to work with if you are trimming or any kind of maintenance.
