I'm currently planning to retrofit of my existing reef setup in favour of a planted aquarium. I'm looking for suggestions / ideas / changes / comments as to what I should stock my tank. My goal
or inspiration is to create a more open styled environment similar to the tank pictures included below.
Here are the specs.
110 Gallon Tank (5' long) drilled to sump.
VHO Lighting: 2x140 watt, 1x110 watt - Probably going with URI AquaSuns. This gives me ~3.5 wpg of VHO lighting.
Substrate: Onyx or a mix (still researching)
UV Sterilizer will be available
Filter: Canister filter media placed in sump and overflow.
Fish selection: to keep it low stocked and have schooling fish. Maximum size of fish must be less then ~5-6" at adult. So far I'm thinking...
- Rummynose Tetra or Cardinal Tetra's (~20)
- Sterba Cory Cats (4)
- Clown Pleco (1)
- Zebra Pleco (1)
Any other suggestions? Maybe two mid water fish.
Plants: (still researching)
- Glossostigma elatinoides
- Riccia fluitan
All help welcomed!
