My 20g High Plan

Hi! I thought I'd share my plan for a 20g high tank.

Light: Finnex Ray 2 (dual day)
Substrate: Eco-Complete
Fish: Cory's, Neons, guppies

I may add some black sand to the substrate after I see how a bag of eco-complete fills the space.

Here are the plants I'm thinking of using:
Anubias Barteri - Nana
Cryptocoryne walkeri 'lutea'
Microsorum pteropus
Vallisneria asiatica var. biwaensis
Ludwigia inclinata
Sagittaria subulata
Elocharis acicularis
Hemianthus callitrichoides
Glossostigma elatinoides

I wanted to get HC and glosso to see which performs best for me. The Ludwigia may be a stretch but I thought it would contrast well if I can keep it going.

I really would have liked to do endlers instead of guppies but they were pretty expensive at D&G.

Any suggestions or criticisms would be welcome. Thanks!

I believe Noahma has Endlers.

Also I just fell in love with these Guppies, the green snakeskin, when I went and looked, they are sold out now but wow!!! They have other amazing looking ones too.

Nice green snakeskins!

Another person that sells online that has EXCELLENT endlers is Adrian Hernandez. He sells on Aquabid and through his website I know he also breeds show quality guppies

I've been meaning to get some from him but have been too tied down with other aquatic projects right now.
