Brennors 110L corner tank

A couple of days ago I got a new tank delivered, a nice 110 litre corner tank. I baught a few fish and plants a few weeks ago that I`ve been keeping in a spare tank.

Anyway... I put 27kg of rock in the tank and tied a few anubias and ferns on to them. this tank is brackish so I`m fairly limited to the plants............. and fish. I also tied some java moss to a couple of stones but I`m not entirely sure how this will work out

The fish.... well I love puffers so I have 4 figure 8 puffers and a 4 striped tiger fish.

I transfered all the rock into the tank 2 days ago and then the filter and finaly the fish after the system had been running for a day.

The filter and some of the water were from another tank, so hopefuly little to no cycle will occur.

Heres a few pics






I`m hoping to try and cover all the rockwork with plants so it looks like a big green mountain.

One problem I do have however, is what fish can I put in to eat algae? it has to be brackish and large enough not to be eaten by the tiger or puffers. Suggestions welcome

Hi Brennor,

I can't answer your question, but I can say you tank looks really nice. I really like the puffers too and have always admired corner tanks.

Good Luck and keep the pictures coming.

I've heard that plecos hate salt . . .

amano's wouldn't last a day . . .

siamese algae eater? well, I've never heard of anyone trying them in brackish.

In his 1st book, Amano mentions he's tried juevenile pacu as algae eaters but . . . well, you know how pacus love plants too and grow huge . . .
