29g Build - My First High-Tech Tank
Hi everybody! I thought I would start a tank build thread on here. I recently brought my old tank to my new house and decided to start from scratch. I used eco-complete as my substrate, some manzanita wood, and some rocks I found lying around.
I am currently using a Sunsun HW 302 filter and a Finnex Stingray 30 inch light.
My current dosing regime is 1/2 cap of Excel daily and 1/2 cap of flourish 2 x weekly. My next upgrade I plan on is making my own CO2 diffuser and then once I dial in my CO2 levels I will upgrade my light to a Finnex Ray 2. I don't want to upgrade my light yet because I'm worried about it causing an algae issue if my CO2 isn't right.
Plants (so far):
Amazon Sword x 3
Java Fern x 2
Parrots Feather x 2
Fish (so far):
Harlequin Rasbora x 14
Amano Shrimp x 4
Bushynose Pleco x 1
Cory (not sure which type yet) x 5-8
Dwarf Gourami x 2 (1 male, 1 female)
I would love suggestions for stocking, I am not as familiar with fish as some so it is tough for me to get creative here as I don't know many unique species that play well.
Let me know what you all think and what suggestions you have!
EDIT: There is also a moneywort and some anacharis in there as well. Also wanted to say that the one rock on top of the wood is just there to weigh it down, once the wood is waterlogged it will be removed.
