Hi guys, thought I would start a journal for my latest tank for a few Australian Desert Goby's, would love any advice from anyone with experience with these fish. The plan is to have the tank slightly brackish if needed, which I know nothing about at the moment! I enjoy researching and discovering new aspects of this hobby with each new tank / aquascape.
Tank - Fire Aqua 45p
Filter - ISTA External Mini Canister
Light - 45cm Chihiros A-Series Plus
Subsrate - ADA La Plata Sand and La Plata Big
Hardscape - Bog Wood logs
Plants - Emersed Lilaeopsis brasiliensis & frogbit
Fish - will be adding a pair of Australian Desert Goby's (Chlamydogobius eremius)
The tank will be kept outdoors in a small rack with 2 tanks below... hopefully with the low plant mass I can keep bad algae at bay, but I expect some.
Plan to keep the plants minimal and water level low, also I think I will clear the tannin stained water with purigen but I do like the look... Just added the Lilaeopsis today behind the big log so its all still a bit flat and tangled up, but should start to grow up a bit higher and be more visible.
