30 Gallon Stocking Ideas
I have had a 30 gallon plated tank running for about 4 months now which previously housed two comet goldfish. As of today, I traded in those comet goldfish (got to about 6 inches each) to my LFS for some store credit. However, I am not sure how to stock this tank correctly. Currently the tank has two albino corys, one pleco and one snail from petsmart. As far as plants go it has some jungle val and some leopard jungle val. My ideal look is just an overgrown jungle look.
Speaking of jungle val I used to have about 30 runners in my tank that would breach the surface but never grow tall. They appeared to just spread out like a quarter in size and not grow tall. Has anyone ever come across this issue or have any advice as to why this happened?
Bump: I have attached a photo of the Jungle val issue that I mentioned in my first post. I left a few runners in the tank today that grew from my original jungle val. All of the leopard jungle val I got from another forum member during the week and planted that today. The runners from the jungle val grew when I originally planted the tank a couple months back but seem to never grow taller once they emerged out of the substrate.
