I, like many others, am in love with that driftwood It's got so much character. Gorgeous tank, I look forward to seeing it come together

Thanks! I am really looking forward to seeing fish take over the tank. I think they'll be happy

I think I have finally decided on fish. Going to go with 10 Pygmy Cory cats and 10 chilli rasbora. Not happening till probably march but I believe I will be flooding soon

Also ordered a 3 stage canister filter some lily pipes, a co2 diffuser, drop checker, aquatek pb regulator and a tank as well as filter media and a set of pfertz fertilizer and root tabs for the tank.

Getting pumped. Will probably flood in January sometime

Very nice! I'd bump up both schools tho! You've got a big tank, and I believe you'll want more the second you set the chilis free

I wasn't sure how much I could stock the tank. I know with co2 and lots of plant growth the amount is higher but I wasn't quite sure by how much. What do you think? 12 and 12? 15 and 15?

Try 12 and 12 when everything until everything is balanced. Then decide if you want more.

Sounds good. I probably won't be stocking for a few months which is a lot of time to think about fish. I'm pretty sure I'm set on those 2 but we'll see. A co worker has a couple tanks at work with tons of cherry shrimp he's been offering too so I might add some in sooner

That wood reminds me a lot of the dead alien guy they found in the ship on the original Alien movie.

Thanks for the comments everyone. Looks like I am going to need a powerhead to circulate some of the water around this piece of wood. The backside is totally dead in terms of water movement.

Anyone have any recommendations on a really really small powerhead? I am trying to keep the equipment very minimal in this tank.

Picked up another portion of glosso today and planted it. Also snagged some more Anubias for my other tank's driftwood which experienced an almost total die off after 5 days of cold shipping with no heat pack or humidity. Ill be careful when buying plants from now on.

Default Nerdariostomp's 12g long wild tank (getting it together, need advice)

Well it's been an interesting last couple of months but I finally got things about as finalized as I'd like and the algae and diatoms have died down significantly.

Anubias, java moss, staurogyne porto velho, Brazilian micro swords, pellia moss on the cholla and hc on the right



New atomic diffuser this week and some fish by the weekend I hope
