That really sucks, I loved them for their color.. Maybe I will go with peacock gudgeons.. Or maybe something altogether different. Hmm.

I got the lava rock. I need to scrub it, boil it, soak it, etc. before I can start hardscaping, but at least I found some that I like. I took my last 2 finals today so I have a little more time for this tank, hoping to have it "started" by next week. Started meaning scaped, dirted, capped, and filled. And semi planted.

So my lava rocks have been boiled & soaked, but there's still moss on them, and I'm having a hard time getting it off. Any suggestions? Can I just leave the moss on and put it in the tank?

Have you ever had apistogrammas?

I love apistogrammas . I used to have a pair until I had to downsize...but once I get a 20 gallon long, I plan to get a pair of trifasciata ^_^.

Do you know whether I need to have my rocks 100% moss free or if they can have moss from a yard on them?

I'd try to take out as much as you can, if the moss dies then it'll foul up your water

I'm looking into getting a co2 regulator, from what I've read a single stage victor is a good bet.

Looks like I need to keep my eyes peeled for a single stage victor, a solenoid, a bubble counter, a needle valve, and some other stuff I can't remember. This should be fun, I love piecing things together like this!

Timeline thus far.
Hardscape inserted and held up with sand.

Dirt in.

Capped with sand and planted sparsely! In the middle of a WC.

Good luck!
I roll with a neon blue dwarf gourami, blue female betta, 4 zebra danios, 4 corys, and a bunch of ottos.
The gourami and betta make the tank pop

Also I really dig your rock scape - that will work out very nicely. I should take some pics of my 30 now that I think about it...
