Setting up a breeding space for my Angel pair before they destroy the main tank terrorizing everyone.

I chose a 26 gallon bow because it is higher than a 20, but not too big for a sponge filter to manage.

I am using 30lbs black Tahitian moon sand with aproximately 10lbs of eco complete substrate.

I built a landscape with deep extract at the back, an angled 6" terra cotta pot, mopani wood and slate. See pictures***. I will add live plants tomorrow.

PH 6.8
KH 5
GH 9

Using Seachem stability, Prime, Flourish Excel and Kent black water extract.

Running a 55 gallona Huijikon double sponge filter with an oversized air pump.

My questions are: what temperature should I set the heater?

Do you think the sponge filter will be able to keep up with waste and create adequate water movement?

Hi there,
I think setting it up at 80 degrees Fahrenheit should be good.
I think that the sponge filters will do okay, but I might be wrong. Just make sure to monitor your water levels and quality.

I decided to add a small HOB filter I had with an adjustable water flow. I purchased a fluval mini sponge to slide over the intake pipe. The Mopani wood I bought was very rich with tannins. If I want to see the fish, a little charcoal is in order. Guess I didn't need to add black water extract after all.
