My 55 gallon low tech journal
A friend of mine needed space in her spare room so her mother could move in. The fact that I was willing to come get it immediately netted me a free 55gallon and an iron stand, so I'm going to turn it into a planted tank. I am somewhat experienced with planted tanks but I have never done anything over 20g so I'm open to advice. The tank will be low tech, here is what I am thinking.
Filter - either an Ehiem 2217 or and Ehiem ECCO 2234
Lights - planning on a 48" Nova Extreme X2 T5HO but I'm open to suggestions
Substrate - Eco complete
Still putting a list together
Cardinal Tetra x12
Rummynose Tetra x12
This is where I need some help, I am looking for suggestions on bottom level fish. I would also like to keep a farlowella or two would they work with the dwarf cichlids? And lastly could I keep a trio of Apistogramma in the same tank with GBRs?
Thanks in advance. I will post a complete plant list and probably some pics later this evening.
