The tanks width is quite skinny: 4.5 inches and the heighth is 8 inches. The rocks barely fit in but they make an open path behind them for smaller fish (left rock), the one on the right has a path behind it as well. The substrate i used is eco-plant granite substrate, its about the same size as your average aquarium gravel. The plants i have in there are anubias, java fern, and cryptocoryene. I had to cut up one piece of spider driftwood into 3 smaller pieces.I’m really curious about the dimensions (length, width and height). That tank (and the decor) looks huge for an 11ish gallon. Normally I would advise against your suggestions, but the strange dimensions could save you, so I would like to know.
The substrate is quite chunky, so I would advise against the loaches.
That is strange because zebrafish are one of the easiest fish. There may be many fish that will be ok with the shallow water (e.g. those living in rice fields or puddles in the wild), but I think you need to take the advantage of the length and have a dynamic species. Your tank of course, maybe a very long nano tank approach, with a lot of Boraras and shrimp.Thats an interesting option but i have had issues taking care of them in the past.
Have you tried the smaller Danio's like the Glowlight, Gold Ring, Emerald Dwarf etc? They are very hardy and active and would love the long tank.Thats an interesting option but i have had issues taking care of them in the past.
I did zebras, would celestials work? Or should i go with rasboras or neon tetras. Or some smaller tetra variety.Have you tried the smaller Danio's like the Glowlight, Gold Ring, Emerald Dwarf etc? They are very hardy and active and would love the long tank.
I was thinking of that but couldn’t find any so I chose cardinal tetras with pandas corys and cherry shrimp.That is a beautiful tank! I feel like a nice school of CPDS or zebra danios would look cool like everyone else, but you said you’ve had some trouble with them. Maybe a school of chili rasabora or ember tetra? I feel like a warm colored fish would pop nicely in that setup
