Rummys are sensitive fish.

I'd recommend a fishless cycle, even though it sucks having a tank with no fish in it. I've done both now, and I found fishless way easier to control the ammonia PPM. Plus if you have plants that are tolerant of it, you can crank the heat up and really speeds up the cycle. I think I cycled my tank at 84 degrees, which is 11 degrees warmer than I normally run it.

I mention the plants because that temp fried my x-mas moss, and when I looked it up after the fact it was pretty clear that it's not tolerant of higher temps. Everything else did great though.

word, thats exactly what im going to do now, once the tank has been cycled ill add them back in but its way harder to keep everything stable with fish. def not going to try that again haha.

That's really Awwwweesommmee...! Never saw a scape like this b4. But, I don't like the Black background. I liked the White (or ur wall..) background (the pics when u started the post), which gives a some what natural look, as if we were seeing the real mountains... Well, that's my personal opinion and I'm not gonna judge these Great works of the Genius people like u here as I'm a newbie, trying to learn things. Looking forward.....

ok so heres an update. everything is finnaly starting to grow well, i think the DHG finally took root. i had to fight a major pH drop berfore i added the fish but now that was all settled i added the livestock yesterday.

Funa:
5 glass cats
13 rummy nose tetras
5 coplani tetras
5 panda cories
6 otos
5 kuli loaches
1 jewel glass fish

im probly going to be adding in some more fish in the near future but for now this will do. i think i want a lager school of glass cats could look realy nice ether them or get some glass blood fin tetras to add to the bunch but i dont like adding to many different kinds of fish together i feel like ti get cluttered.
