ADA 60p College Apisto Tank -Dry Start- Week 3

Got a deal on two ADA tanks a 60p and a Mini-m about a month ago.

Lets start the journey!

Dry Start was stated 10/10/17

About
ADA 60P (used)
ADA Amazonia
ADA Stone? (Bought it with tanks)(used)
Hornwood (had some mold so removed it for DSM)
Filter: Fluval 105 (bought used) or I have a eheim 2217 but I am worried about too much flow...
Light: finnex planted plus 24/7 (used)


Goals
Apistogramma Cacatuoides pair (will have a cabe under hornwood, also there is a cave under main stone.
Schooling fish of some sort: (green neon, pencil fish, H. Rasbora) Recommendations?
Ottos
I would love some Corys, but worry about compatibility
I would also love some amanos and cherries, but not sure about compatibility (help?)


Decided to try a Dry Start to grow in the dwarf baby tears. First week and a half has been great!

I do not have a co2 system yet, Not sure if I will get one before I flood...

I have grown baby tears without co2 in my spec V...(Journal is not up to date.)

So far so good

More to come...

ps posting pictures in forums is super frustrating! Ill read up on this...
