Planted Chiclid Tank
Chiclid's are a fish I've never done much with, if anything.....
But, the wife wants blood parrots so I promised her I would reset up the 46 Gallon as a Planted Chiclid tank for them.
Right now though I'm at a loss as to where to start.
I know some members on here are doing planted Chiclid tanks so I could really use some help in figureing out what plants, etc... to put in.
I could also use help in choosing tank mates, which they won't eat and won't touch the plants, that I can place in the tank while getting the plants to grow out.
Essentially I'm starting the 46 Gallon Bowfront back up. I want to start with some low light plants to begin with and then add the higher life plant after I get a couple of fixtures from AH Supply to put in the 125 Gallon.
This is going to be a long running project, I don't expect to add the Blood Parrots for at least 2 months. Right now I want to get the aquascape in place w/ some plants that they won't tear to pieces and let them grow in.
So, any help/advice is appreciated.
