Hello, thanks for reading. I have a 40 gallon breeder just finishing cycling. I have 1"-1.5" dirt front to back. About same for pool filter sand. I got quite a bit of hiding places from some rocks I put together, I just got a few plants in.(Anacharis and Wisteria-java moss too) I got a penguin 350 and a dual sponge filter, 2 shop lights approx: 140 total fluorescent watts. I just got a great deal on 8 peppered corys, $1 a piece! I'm hoping I didn't get too many. Because I want an albino BN pleco along with maybe 4 already paired GBR's also. I also had maybe like 10 or so cardinals or neons in mind.I would go for zebra danios, dwarf gourami, otos too. maybe throw some RCS in there when the time comes. I'm slowly putting this thing together, I'm pretty new to the little more advanced side of fishkeeping so any help would be great. Tell me any ideas or what you think about species, equipment, and/or stock. BTW money is somewhat an issue. Thanks again.
