An 8.5 gallon tank, formerly my shrimp tank, stripped down and replanted last week to begin the growout process as a Dwarf Rasbora breeding tank.
There's a variety of leaves to give them places to lay their eggs: Anubias, ludwigia, bacopa caroliniana, and cryptocoryne wendtii. The latter two were from small Tropica cups so will take a while to grow in.
TDS is currently 126, and will need to be slowly softened down to around 80-100 over the next couple of water changes.
pH target is just above 6.5 and there are alder cones in there working their magic.
Substrate is sand and fluorite.
I already really love these little guys, and I've only had them in the tank for just over an hour (after drip acclimation). If I get them to breed successfully I have a feeling I'm going to take the Danios out of the 55g and let these little ones take over.
