So, sever months ago I found a 29 gallon for free on the curb. I finally got around to setting it up. It's been running for about a couple weeks after the cycle with some moss and java ferns for plants. My hope is to create a relatively simple tank with easy to grow plants so that when I leave for college I don't leave my parents with too much work
The light right now is just a regular CFL bulb, but I have a Marineland LED fixture I will put on it in a couple days.
I added 3 Kuhli loaches last week, and they love swimming in and out of the nooks and crannies in the driftwood.
The tank will become significantly more interesting over the next week:
I have some more java fern, mosses, and fissidens courtesy of flyfshrmn98 coming in wednesday. And I ordered 4 electric blue rams, which should get here friday!!! (I will definitely post pictures of them when they arrive)
I'm thinking of adding 15 or so Corydoras habrosus
or maybe 7 Panda corys (I can't decide
) and a shoal of small schooling fish--I don't really want anything that gets over 2" because I'm afraid they'll draw too much attention from the EBRs.
What do you guys think of the stock for this 29 gallon? Any suggestions for the schooling fish?
