Adding fish to a planted tank
I have a 67L tank, currently I have the filter and heater running with just the driftwood in (just to get rid of the tannin and making sure the wood has properly sunk before planting - which I'm hoping to do next weekend)
I'll be swapping the sponge from the filter baskets to small ceramic biomedia and planting a Pothos in there. Plants in the tank are amazon frogbit, alternanthera reineckii, neseae pedicellata golden, baby dwarf tears, weeping moss and a moss ball or two.
Fish list will eventually be - Red cherry shrimp (starting at 4 or 5) 10 black neon tetras, 10 harlequin rasboras, 1 longfin bristlenose plec, 3 khuli loaches and a Betta Splendens.
As I said the tank will be planted next weekend (hopefully - though I may not get the pedicel as the golden variety is rare around here but my aquarium shop said he'd give it a go) and it will cycle for a month without fish. My plan is to use a liquid fertilizer but over the month to slowly increase the amount I put in so when I add all the fish) minus the betta) it won't overload the tank.
Would this work? I was also considering getting the shrimp at the same time as the plants - thoughts?
