I am new to this forum; it seems to crash less and be more aesthetically pleasing than others I use, so I'll give it a try. Had renovations last year so after having to stop all indoor gardening (no power, water) and three teardowns, 55, 20 long, 10g, we only have a single 10g running, as well as a 1g that I dose with ferts to sprout bulbs and save sad plants. The 10g is currently planted with 3 hygrophila, a little monte carlo, rosette sword, java fern, water onion, and a red lotus. The 1g is sprouting 4 Aponogeton Ulvaceus, as well as holding onto some extra monte carlo and narrow leaf java fern that will be going into this beauty! (Photo below.) 75g will be planted with the a. Ulvaceus, monte carlo, java fern, christmas moss, and about 15 others I will be happy to overpay for online. Denver is kind of a dead zone for quality aquarium foliage, so if you're in the area and sell clean, healthy plants I wanna talk. I would rather give you money and have my choice. Substrate is flourite, with flourite tabs, as well as lava rock, play sand, and colorado stream rock; driftwood for snape, and because it is beautiful, of course. Filtration will be a canister and sponge for now, however, a sump system with a refugium will be getting set up to feed all my tanks, including a qt and plants downstairs as soon as i can scrape some bills together. The tank will house my lovely frisky pair of heavily breeding golden panda mollies, yukifuribaba and gil, and their scoliosis stricken, polyamorous ballon molly friend, Cynthia; a school of platies (sunburst and a few straggler mm's,) our sassy leopard pleco, Snape, and a medium shoal of rainbows or perhaps a docile centerpiece. Any suggestions? I was thinking boesemani rainbows, white cloud minnows, maybe a bichir or a blood parrot? Is that silly? I just don't know about cichlids, theyre beautiful, but I like my plants and mollies too much to endanger them... this tank will be getting built up in the next week or so, thusly wish me luck and get back to me if you sell quality aquatic plants in Denver.
Thanks again, happy to be here,
