26 Gallon SeaClear Fresh/Community Tank

Hello All,

I used a cycling kit and put in 12 zebra danios a few days back (it took about 7 days to cycle). I've added the Asian and some cuba two days back. For now I'm just doing a small dose of flourish. I sourced local basalt for the hardscape (along with sand and some ADA Amazonia) and some spiderwood.

I have a fluval 206 for filtration along with an led bubble bar (that I've disconnected-the bubbles are too big). I'm using the stock hood with a 6500k bulb and an LED Nicrew bar. I'm going to give the tank another week then start stocking it with more and better fish (I may give the danios to my daughter). I'd like lots of small schooling fish plus some loaches (for cleanup). Any advise or suggestions would be great!

For now it's going to be low tech. I have more plants on the way.

Bump: The water is cloudy because I added the powdered seaweed from the cycling kit and it was pure black for a few days (there are still tannins).

Oh man... careful... the community tanks will get ya!! Personally... I would do a group.of Gertrude Rainbows and maybe Panda Garra... that would be cool... then you will get into breeding them to get your group numbers up. There are so many cool fish that would work in a little community. I really like the Rainbows because they hang out and interact constantly. The males flare up and have dance offs with other males then they try to impress the females.. all with no injury. I love community fish and the look they help to create, but the interactions and displays of Rainbows are really something else. Like all the looks and attitude of African cichlids, but no injuries.
