How's this 75 gallon setup?
Hi, I'm planning on getting a 75 gallon aquarium. It's 48" x 16" x 21".
I will have it very heavily planted with:
- jungle vals
- java fern
- java moss
It will be mostly planted with the jungle vals.
These are the fishes I'm planning on:
- 8 cardinal tetras
- 3 blue gouramis
- 4 siamese algae eaters
- 6 cory cats
- 2 bristlenose pleco
- 3 oto cats
- 10 tiger babrs
- 1 red tailed shark or 1 rainbow shark
That is also the order I'm planning on getting them. I'll buy each type of fish, 1 week apart. I know that tiger barbs are fin nippers and may nip the gouramis, but I'll have it heavily planted and they will be in a school of 10 so there shouldn't be any problems.
I'll have lots of driftwood and rocks.
The last thing I need to decide on is whether to use sand or fine natural gravel as the substrate. Does anyone know which one would be best for my tank.
Also, there may be a chance that I'll be getting a 90 gallon, at 48" x 18" x 24".
So what do you think about my plan?
