Hi guys! My wife got me a Mr. Aqua 12 G Long for Christmas. I've been thinking and researching on what substrate, lighting, filter and heater to use.
I plan on stocking it with some Cristal Red Shrimps and some Otos.
I want to do mostly carpeting with rocks, this will be my first time using a carpeting plant so I'll be using Micranthemun Monte Carlo since it was recommended to me as an easy carpeting plant. My plan is to do a Dry Start and I was thinking on using ADA Amazonia Aquasoil.
For lighting I think I'll go with a Finnex Stingray. Would this give me medium light?
For filter I was thinking about using the Finnex px-360. What do you think about this filter?
For heating I'm thinking about the hydor inline filter. Is there any other unobstrusive heater out there?
Do you guys have any suggestions or advice before I pull the trigger on this setup?

|thump421||I have 18 cpds in my 12 long with 4 Ottos and no shrinp (yet) they've been happy and healthy for a few months now but I do think I'm pushing the overstocked line. I do have quite a bit of filtration and never miss a weekly water change though.|

|RipTide23||Anyone have a good guess at how many Celestial Pearl Danios I could fit in my 12g long? I've been thinking of getting around 15 or so, keep in mind I will have a variety of small shrimp in there with them i.e. blue velvets, red cherrys and yellow's.|

|Kingtriton92||Finally got my Mr Aqua scaped and flooded. After taking this picture, I made the sandbar divider more of a triangle to give a feel of a vanishing point. I used water and filter media from my 29 gallon to do an instant cycle. Went with the Planted + light. So far I'm pretty happy with it. Now to be patient and wait for the plants to grow.|

not really a 12G but close enough for me :P (bit smaller than a 60P)

|Kingtriton92||Just picked one up yesterday and can't wait to start playing with hardscape placement tonight/ this weekend. Such an elegant looking tank. Anyone using pendant style lights for these tanks? Was thinking Kesil but I am worried the shallow dimensions would mean to much light. Also, how efficient is co2 in such a shallow tank?|
