Hello, I plan on purchasing this tank (http://www.amazon.com/Fluval-Spec-V-Aquarium-Kit/dp/B0089E5VLC) soon. My last tank went down in flames from a Mycobacterium infection that kept recurring even after being fallow and near perfect water quality. I am quite busy with vet school, so I am a little apprehensive about starting this small tank, as I want it to have really good water quality, so if anyone has an opinion regarding my set-up and how much time it will take to maintain, please chime in. I really want to do a planted tank. I do not want to do CO2, but I may add another LED strip or two for more light. I am thinking going a month or so with just red cherry shrimp to get them breeding up nicely. It will also give me time to see if I want to add fish or not based on my time availability. The plants will also have time to grow. As far as fish, I love gouramis. I have had sparklers, and I really enjoyed them. I was thinking either a pair of sparkling gouramis or honey gouramis, the latter I have never had before. I would love some opinions on the personality of honey gouramis, and the opinion of people who have had both would be most appreciated. I am not sure if I should have anything else in the tank. Any other suggestions? Thank you for taking the time to answer my post. Cheers.
