Da Plant Man's messy 10g dutch.

Hello!

I recently set-up my 10g because I needed something to do. My 15g emersed tank too easy for me, and I need something to occupy my time until I get my UBER EXPENSIVE aquarium. ( I am keeping that one a secret thank you very much.)

Anyways, its going to be high-light, high tech, 4.5wpg paintball co2. It has flourite black sand cap with a underlayer of potting soil. I hope to have around 20 speices of fine leafed plants (rotalas, pogostemons, etc) and lots of red. There will be no hardscape, I am going to leave that space for more plants.

Stocking is going to be:
  • 12 chili rasboras
  • 6 amano shrimp
  • Crystal black shrimp
  • Taiwan fire red RCS
  • Either 6 thread-fin rainbow fish OR
  • some larger shrimp "safe" fish

    I will post a plant list later when I have time.

    Anyways, I took a video because I can't take ANY pictures of the fish.

    Oh, and shout out to Mzjinkndz for supplying to fish, and to Azfishkid for the plants

EPIC VIDEO. Nice pronunciation on those plant names btw. (not sarcasm)
Looks like this'll be a fun tank!

Thanks! I love the tank already, maybe its because the fish are amazing, but I think its going to be a good learning tank. I have never done EI dosing, so that will be fun.

I commend you on your pronunciation. I laughed when you said "P. yatabeanus" though. It is just such an epic plant name!

Those chili rasboras are amazing! Absolutely stunning. I love their colors. Quick question, how on earth do you know each of those plants by name!?!? They all look the same to me...

Oh, and you just inspired me to start my own video journal. Keep it up K-10!

Pogostemon yatabeanus is my favorite plant name. I know them by name because I have no life and spend most my time staring at them.

Nikki from the shrimp lab just gave me a ludicrous deal on 10 black S grade CRS. This tank is falling in place one thing after another. Now all I need are taiwan fire red RCS and more plants.

I was going cross eyed when you started with the plant names. I was wondering if I stopped being able to comprehend speech. Nice! I love the chili's one of my favorite fish.

I say go with the threadfins, you will not be disappointed.

I had threadfin's before. I want a fish that is larger, but won't eat my shrimp. I think I might just go with them, I only had one last time. Unless there are any other ideas. Plants names are fun to say just to impress people I most likely had them wrong, just most people are terribad at pronunciation too so they play along

I think threadfins will work with shrimp well. I had them with my cherry's, they have very very small mouths lol. And they can get to 2-2.25" with all the finnage.

I like the name Crypt. Undulata lol rolls off the tongue.

my only concern for your tank is meeting the needs of all those different shrimp. They mostly all like very different parameters, both in hardness and temperature and I will be curious to see how it works out for you.
Glad you like the critters!

I might just choose another kind of shrimp that are compatible with my CBS. However, I see A LOT of RCS kept with CRS, these are just two different morph's of those, correct?
