My amazon biotope tank (so far)
Ive been trying to finish this for so long.
During the summer (prob june) I had the idea to redo my tank into an amazon biotope. I didnt really like the way my tank looked, as it looked kinda dinky and beginner-like. First, i started by replacing fish with amazon fish. I already had a few tetras, but i replaced my mollies and a few other fish with stuff like Angelfish, hatchet fish, and tetras. I planned out a dozen or two plants i wanted that gave the tank an amazon look. im STILL trying to finish. I got about a quarter or half the plants on my list, and ive been trying to get the rest. I did a special order through my LFS (midway tropical fish and pets) and the shipments were supposed to come yesterday, but they didnt for God knows what reason.
Current Info (will upload pic soon)
2 Angels (one marbled one silver stripe)
5 hatchets (two silver three marbled)
3 veiltail black skirt tetras
1 Clown Pleco
4 nerite snails
1 amano shrimp. Ive had him for a year, barely ever see him
Amazon Sword (one turned into three)
moss balls (5) home for my pleco during the day
two anubias (attached to wood
What I need
tetras (a few penguin, neon, and jellybean)
it may look like way too many plants, but trust me its barely enough.
Im going for the heavy planted look, just not a carpeted look.
Its probably a little overstocked so ill increase water changes to weekly. Ill update when i get stuff.
