Here's a video update - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oRS_pikZiR8
Today I finally got the 100g filled and filtering after a long slow process of adding ~20g and waiting several days and repeating. Luckily only a single piece of my hardscape budged and only by an inch or two. Still lots of tannins but that's just a flush or two from being no problem at all. I'll be adding 50 very small white clouds to the tank later this week.
I added a true Siamese algae eater (siamensis, not algae shark, flying fox, chinese algae eater) to my 40g along with a half dozen odessa barbs. Not sure why but I rarely rarely see true Siamese algae eaters so I'm stoked on the find.
This isn't in stone but is what I'm thinking for the 100g
6-10 corys/loaches/botias not sure
6 celestial pearl danios
2 kuhli loach
1 rubber nose pleco
pair of american flag fish
6 odessa barbs (I'll move the ones in the 40 over likely)
10-20 rummynose tetras (still deciding on this one)
50 white clouds
3 roseline sharks aka redline barb
1 german blue ram
4 scarlet baddis
6 threadfin rainbows
2 peacock gudgeons
1 flame dwarf gourami
I'll try and grab stills later.
