so i did the calculations and the lady i bought it from lied to me, its actually a 31gal? or so.
Properly lighting a tank like this will be very tough. What are you planning on growing?
i'm planning on using local plants from the guadalupe river, and maybe the comal, or canyon lake. as for the lighting i'm thinking about buying a couple clip on lights to get light to the bottom. the tank is on stand that is larger than the base so i think it could work nicely.
Perhaps a riparium... as a regular tank, it wouldn't be that great for shoaling fish as horizontally there isn't much room to swim. I don't know of fish that like the go up and down vertically - most just like to stay near the top, mid, or bottom and swim horizontally which this tank doesn't have a lot of. Shrimps do go everywhere so that might be a good option.
idk if i want a riparium i haven't really been able to find a good guide. and it seems like a lot more work than i want to do. i think the tank is tall enough i could do a top water school, and bottom water school? or of course my giant rock pile for the cray :-)
I think you should do the tall rock pile for your cray! that would be awesome.
thats my fav idea, i'm just not good at stacking rocks...(saying that makes me feel "special") i'm thinking i could still get away with fish in the tank, at the surface, and maybe mid water, without the cray eating them.
also i'm not exactly sure, how to build a cave in the rock pile. it seems like it should be very simple....
