So I have an Evolve 8
(need to update as I have added more plants and a couple flat rocks) and I didn't plan on fish as I wanted this as low maintenance as possible. I will be putting Malowa shrimp in it that I am getting this weekend in a trade. Thinking about some red cherry shrimp from home also depending on how many Malowa I get.
Anyway my office/desk tank has been well received and coworkers keep asking when I will add fish
It has been cycling a few weeks and I think the plants are still adjusting, some growth (new Finnex light arriving Thursday). I'm not keen on Betas...never was. I have Endlers at home and could bring some in but I'd like something different at work if I'm going with fish.
I guess I need some opinions on what might work. Flow is turned down to about 25% on the stock pump but still moves water quite a bit. The temp is set at 75 right now but due to heat shutdowns in the building on holidays and weekends (energy savings being taken to far IMO
) temps could fluctuate but I think the heater will hold. I am away from desk at least one full day every week and will not ask anyone else to do any feeding.
What could add in a small group that would be low maintenance, and have a small group of?
I am heading to a pretty awesome LFS this weekend (2hr trip) so if I had some ideas I would have a better chance at finding something more unique than my local petsmart selections.
