47g Corner community tank


First tank journal! Hope you enjoy it

I purchased this tank used from a nice older gentleman a week or so ago and I've spent that time resealing it and getting it prepped to set up. The plan is to go with a plated community tank and, while its not my first planted tank, it is going to be my first tank where I've put more than a little thought into things like proper substrate & decent lighting.

Planned stock is:

10+ Sterba's corydoras
2 Rams
4 Cockatoo Apistos
10+ Rummynose Tetras OR CPDs OR another small schooling fish (I haven't quite decided yet)
1 Bristlenose plec

(This could easily change.)

The tank as of today.



My next step is to pick up some eco-complete, another light fixture (it only came with one,) and a power strip so I can actually plug the filter in and start cycling. Substrate is going to be eco-complete underneath sand.

The larger grains in the eco will surface over time when disturbed. Otherwise, I like your dw, hope that anubias fills in nicely.

I'm not too concerned about a few grains of eco working their way up over time, in the grand scheme of things I'm not much of a neat freak.

And thanks! I love the DW too - can you believe I got it free with the tank?

i love corner tanks, I was expecting bowfront but I love this style even better, the panels make for great viewing areas. I will be watching this thread to see how it comes, lovely piece of dw, you should consider adding more branchy pieces IMO
