Here are some thoughts I have about changing my tank a little. I plan to get CO2 in a month or so. I was thinking of having a diagonal line of blyxa to the corner from the back corners of the driftwood and the replace all the stems in the back Rotala Coralata (i think that is how it is spelled) or another red stem. Please leave any other ideas thank you.
Quick update: Best shrimp died of molting issues ( most likely too much protien ), most hair algae is gone, and going to get more chili's. I see everyone that has them says they are usually out and about. I think if I increase the school a little they will be less shy. Any suggestions welcome
So I plan to tear down and remake my 10 gallon. I want to restock the tank and get everything under control. The restocking list:
Pygmy Cories- 6+ not totally sure
Scarlet Badis- 1 or 3 sparkling gouramis
Supreme Red neos from Speedie
Crystal Reds or blacks (maybe both)
I plan to keep the driftwood and new plants and ones I will keep:
moss (mini pellia and mini xmas)
Some kind of small leafed stem (need suggestions)
Maybe anubias nana petiet
Some plants that will add color, having real trouble with this.
I would be worried with doing badis or guarami with the shrimp since they are predators. I know they are small but I lost a bunch of shrimp when I first started and put RCS and Bumble bee shrimp in with my dwarf guarami
