I have never had a tank over 20 gallon that I have planted and worked really hard on. (Always just had some big fish in it and made it look nice with plastic plants
But now I want to build my new tetra paradise!
Here is what I want to do! :
Substrate: Eco-Complete midnight Black- 120ibs.
Hard scape: Various rocks and stones and a nice piece of driftwood
Plants: Three medium to big amazon swords, and idk?!?! Suggestions?
Lighting: 2x 48" Finnex FugeRay Planted +
6 Cory Cats (not 100% on the specific type)
8 Hatchets (not 100% on the specific type)
Some Red Cherry Shrimp (I have hundreds so ill take them from another . tank)
50-60 Neon Tetras
Filtration: 55-60 Gallon HOB filter, 20 Gallon internal filter. Will upgrade to canister later on or before I start the tank idk yet.
Heater: 300 Watt Jager Heater (The room is really cold so it has to be a higher wattage to keep up and not burn out)
So what do y'all think? I keep about 4 other tanks than this one and right now it just got some feeders in it keeping it dirty till I buy all my stuff for it.
Is this to many fish? Is it not realistic? DO they not go together? Taking all suggestions! Just want to really go all out on this tank! Its honestly my dream tank and has all the fish I want and even my cherries!
