Thanks! As far as plants go, I've been buying up as many fast growing stems as I can through swap and shop here. So far I have sunset hygro, red ludwigia, a couple of different bacopas, cabomba, moneywort, hornwort, macandra, and anacharis for bunches. Also have some jungle val and micro sword that I definitely want to get the tank started out with, too. My melon sword, aponogeton, crypts, and java fern may get transfered over, too, but I'm undecided as of yet on that. Oh, I definitely plan on getting some glosso when we get it up and running...I'm out of room in our 55 now!
At first I thought I'd just transfer all the current tank residents of the 55 gallon over to the 135- guppies, platies, cory cats, weather loach, 2 clown plecos, one common pleco, cherry and ghost shrimp. Now, I'm debating on putting the shrimp in the sump area and aquiring angels, rams, and a school of rasboras. The livebearers don't really "fit", do they? I just don't have the heart to give up my guppies since I like them so much, but Tim has me convinced that the larger tank needs some larger fish as well. The 55 will become a mbuna tank, so definitely can't put the poor gups in there, lol....
I don't know...maybe I'll keep the guppies to the sump area, and use the "excess" batches of fry to feed to the angels. Don't quite know what to do yet livestock wise....help!
