    Idk what I want to put into this tank, I was hopping for some suggestions? I'm running double 13 watt for 7.8 gal, co2 diffuser, stratum substrate and German ram. [​IMG]

    A German ram isn't appropriate for this tank, but it would make a lovely shrimp tank!

    What are the dimensions? Chilli rasbora may work too.

    30x30x34

    I'm guessing that's in centimeters?

    I'm not sure I'd put anything other than a betta or inverts in there. It has a pretty small footprint.

    Agreed. It's a really cool tank and I had the same lighting so I know you can grow just about anything in there but I would do shrimp. I had a Betta in mine, a female, but I fear that it wasn't as much swimming room as she would have liked.

    What plants do you recommend and the German ram is going into my 29

    You have lots of options with CO2 injection and that lighting. Anything short will do! You could try carpeting dwarf hairgrass or baby tears (you may need higher light for these though). I'm a big fan of crypts, and C. parva stays small.

    I like the look of anything with floating lily pads because you can really see the long stems trailing to the surface. One that did that was supposedly Aponogeton natans but may not have been. The other was Nuphar japonica.

    I have tried hairgrass I think I need more light but not baby tears are they easy to plant?

    If hairgrass didn't work, I don't think baby tears will.

    What else do you think I can plant in this tank?

    I'd recommend crypts, mosses, S. repens, and dwarf sag.
