Look up king of diy plywood tank build. Won't be cheap but half the price of a 300+ aquarium. I don't think 700-800 will Be enough in acrylic to build a tank. You need 3/4 inche sheets of acrylic. Plus equal thickness for some braces on top.
Amazon swords are a good option as well. Once the roots get in the sand and stretch out they are difficult to pull out for me. Java moss is an option to cover your decorations. Once the java moss starts growing though it takes over.
Yes I hear maroons are mean. But I found two beautiful maroon when I was getting fish after my move. So far both model citizens. The female is getting massive. Though I do have a 120g. 4x2 so just a little bigger than your tank. Keep up the work it will level out nutrients wise .
Drain water to a very low point makes it easier to corner the fish. I only moved my saltwater corals but it took hours to do. Moving the 29 gallon with Cardinal tetras and rams was tough getting them out! Then plants are a whole nother level
Yes I agree. Ample water change schedule. And good cleaning the fish will survive and people do stock alot in smaller tanks. One reason I am not a big fan of judgement on stocking. My concern is the large aggressive fish in a smaller tank. But I bet the tank looks great and with the right care...
80% water change. Added more wood removed alot of over grown plants. Ignore the massive amounts of bladder snails. And cloudy from adding water!
And now as I watch my two tidal 55 clear up the 40g. I'm thinking 3 angelfish would look nice in here! It's been in my plans for the future but maybe...
It will lie dormant. But with the syphon pulling water no cyst will attach to the hose. And next use water will be pulled away from the hose to a new container. Then if cyst hatch first no water to move in and no living host the free swimming ich will die.
