40B close to stocking
My 40B is nearing the end of its cycle, I'm just waiting for the nitrites to drop. My current stocking plan is for 12 Venezuelan corys, 3 red lizard whiptail cats, and 18-24 harlequin rasboras. I'll be ordering most, if not all online. My question is how should I order them? I'm thinking of either ordering the corys all at once, followed by the whiptails, lastly the rasboras. I don't want to overload the biological filter, but the catch is I don't have a quarantine tank set-up. I might get a 10g for the rasboras as I have a nightstand it can fit on and they're out of stock on them so it might be a while before I get them. The other catch is that it's not planted yet. Other than a tiger lotus I don't know what I want. The tank has a lot of rocks, so some anubias or buces are a possibility. Maybe a few rosette swords and some java moss. So any suggestions or thoughts welcome.
