Hey guys,

I recently lost nearly all my stock of betta sorority to columnaris, so I will be rebuilding from scratch. I will be using all of my current plants, plus more (letting my medicine for the columnaris work it's stuff before adding anything. I won't be adding fish for a few weeks either, but I wanted opinions and to hear what you guys think.

Flora:
5 small/medium Brazilian swords
1 bunch of Frill
1 bunch of telanthra
1 bunch of stargrass
1 red flame sword
1 small java fern
1 large java fern
2 big clumps of java moss
A bunch of anachris (probably will remove)
1 bunch of bacopa

Fauna:
11x ember tetras (survivors)
6-8x Panda cities (currently have 6 survivors)
6-8x Glolight Tetra (not glofish) OR 6-8x Emperor Tetras
3x nerite snails (1 tiger 2 zebra, also survivors)
1x Dwarf Gourami (been in my 10g for 6 months)
25ishx Red Cherry Shrimp

To add:
Dragon Stone
Malaysian Drift Wood
Seiru Stone

Any suggestions or comments are welcome and needed, for plants, rocks, wood or fish

@TexasDomer Im simply tagging you to hear your thoughts especially on my stocking, I know you always get this lol but I need other opinions.

Thanks,
Ace

In a 20 gal long, I'd just do one mid/upper level dwelling school, not two.

The dwarf gourami will likely eat your small shrimp, and may cause the larger shrimp to hide more. Is that okay?

It appears on of my girl bettas might actually survive, I’ve been doing constant water changes while i’m waiting for my meds, so instead of a DG, she will just stay in the tank if she makes it

I spoke too soon i’m afraid. A lot can happen while you’re at work I suppose.

How would you breakdown the stocking Domer?

I'm sorry that you lost her.

I'd do one of these options:

12-15x Ember tetra
8-12x Panda cories
25x Cherry shrimp (if you want to save money, you can start with 10-15, as they'll breed and give you more)
3x Nerites

12-15x Ember tetra
8-12x Panda cories
1x DG
5x Amano shrimp
3x Nerites

Alright guys, so I’ve rescape the 20g, and built it a new stand. I replaced two fake decor with a piece of dragon stone and a piece of driftwood (not sure if it’s mopani or not). Any comments or suggestions welcome!
