My one thought about reverse light cycle is that it's purpose is to aid in PH stability which tends to drop when photosynthesis stops at night. This makes sense for saltwater tanks since the ocean's...

Well floaters have access to atmospheric CO2 and so aren't limited by it's availability like fully aquatic plants are(partly at least why they can multiply so quickly).

Nerites are incapable of righting themselves if flipped over so if they fall off of the glass or rock work and land on their backs with nothing near to grab onto they will eventually die. I'm not...

All crayfish are opportunistic feeders, even CPO's. The problem in your setup is the cories and the CPO occupy the same part of the tank, increasing the likelihood of them being in close proximity. ...

My Aquaclears are usually almost completely silent. Is it just the cover rattling or the impeller? Usually if one starts making noise a thorough cleaning gets them back in order for me.

I have thought about shellies. I wasn't sure how they'd stand up to the luci's? Also their insistence on using shells instead of caves does create an issue with the scape(ie not much room to create...

Been doing some closer looking and I don't think Calvus/comps will work with the furcatus. It'd be nice to find something to contrast the julidochromis(assuming that's what I end up with) From what...

I'm not sure about how to deal with the CO2 offgassing issue, I'll have to think about that.

As I see it the ideal setup(from my perspective of course) would be a 40 breeder display tank with a...

Thai micro crabs are too small to be a threat to anything bigger than young cherry shrimp, but you're right I wouldn't trust even CPO's to not at least attempt to take a piece of an ADF at night. ...

Thanks. I wasn't thinking of much in the way of plants. Just some Anubias/java fern/bolbitis for color/texture growing off of the rock work and maybe java moss on some rocks. I have two rock...

Thanks for the replies.

The size of the tank is why I was going to use sulphurhead peacocks as they are the smallest and generally the mildest temperament wise. I just decided that a 75 gallon...

I like it. The rock in the foreground doesn't seem to be exactly the same type/texture as the others and I think it would have better visual appeal, if it was, looking more like they were part of a...

I think Calvus get a little big(up to 6" for males) and are predatory by nature so would probably at some point view the rainbows and barbs as potential meals.

Compressiceps is a little less...

Stocking suggestions for a 40B hard water setup

I've had this 40B setup for awhile. It was originally used as a grow out tank, but the plan was always for some sort of interesting hard water scape.

I used caribsea black aragonite(more varied...

they are no more active than danios and getrudae are 25% smaller. Gertrudae would do fine in 10 gallon.

That's pretty hard water for most tetras. I would think one of the danios species or smaller rainbows like pseduomugil gertrudae might work well.
