Just joined the site looking for some advice & ideas for an Asian themed tank. Just got a 5ft x 1.5ft x 2ft aquarium roughly 90 gallons (350 literes) after hardscaping, looking for some ideas on some interesting tank mates???
Thanks for the quick response Paradise fish, I have a shoal of 18 Glowlight Rasbora & 6 Amano shrimp all happy at the moment but just cycling the tank, set it up a week ago so early days yet. Looking to introduce shoals of small fish (10 - 20 size) over the next few weeks & maybe a few larger specimens like Samurai Gourami any suggestions?
This is my new tank set up, it's still a bit empty at the moment as it's only a week old. Water parameters are ph 7.4, temp 25C no ammonia / nitrate / nitrite present as yet. Current stock is 18 Glowlight Rasbora & 6 Amano shrimp, looking to add another shoal of 10 to 20 small fish next week, any ideas?
Looks great!! Love the background! You're probably not gonna get any ammonia/nitrite/nitrate readings with the current stock.. 90 gallons with 18 rasbora and 6 amanos though. Since you already have fish, (meaning you can't do a fishless cycle), I'd up the stock, & use TSS+ if it were me
Thanks NightShade, decided to cycle it with a small stock of hardy fish to start with then increase slowly, using JBL Denitrol bio starter for the filter medium & JBL Biotopol to detoxify the water.
mbkemp, like your idea for the cpd's they're tiny so a good sized shoal of them would look great & I've been looking at some Pseudomugils of one sort or another but it's a bit early in the tank cycle for them yet I think but I have to admit I do like them.
