Wow, I like the idea. Fits the cube well. Can't wait to see it grow in! Any thoughts on livestock if any?
Thanks MikeP, I appreciate the comments. I can't wait either as there are a couple plants that I would like to spread out on. Livestock plans were sort of made yesterday but I may change them. Original thoughts were for it to start with 8 Otos and slowly move down to 4 as it balances, 6 Hatchets and 10 Three-Lined Pencilfish.
I have been tossing around making an order from an online fish supplier and so far have only found Boxlotfish.com that carries the fish I am looking for at a decent price. Suggestions of another site to check out would be awesome. I have 4 tanks that are basically fish less and an online order just seems to make sense.
But that being said and midnightk mentioning....
some angels would look sweet in that . even one or 2 discus. juvies tho
keep it up!
With that comment I thought maybe a few angels would look good. I have a couple in a community tank that I could take out and toss in to see how they look in there. I will take some pics of it for sure and see what you think. Thanks Midnightk.
i love seeing cube tanks, im working on one now. I agree on the center setup for the cube. Great tank.
Yeah cubes draw me in for sure. I saw this one on craigslist for a steal and couldn't resist. I love having multilple ways to view the tank and where it sits I get the opportunity to see it all. It seems the center setup is the best but when this fills in I am sure I will break it down and do something new. Thanks for the comments Wicket.
I like this so far. Can you list the flora so far? What is the substrate in front and are you planning on having the hairgrass fill it in?
Thanks Cah. The substrate in front is Xengu forest sand that I had left over from the front of my 60gallon. The hairgrass is actually Lilaeopsis mauritius which is a narrow leaf chain sword thats suppose to grow a bit faster and under easier conditions then regular Micro sword. I don't plan on it filling in and in fact didn't plan on this going in the tank but I had some left over and had to put it down somewhere. It looks ok now but if it starts spreading I am not sure what I will do. It may look ok filled in, huh?
I will come back and do a complete flora list in a bit.
Thanks for looking everyone.
