I wouldn’t mix hillstream loach and glass cat glass cat like low flow same with corydoryas while hillstream loach like rapids
Yes, you may want to read the thread. Corydoras will do fine with slower current as well, but when give more flow, like an airstone, they might ”dance”. Same with hillstream loaches. But without the dancing part... Fast flow for these fish is not necessary for their survival, its just a specific of their natural habitat IMO.

About 10 days. Everything is looking good. Except that piece of wood that refuses to sink.

All my Co2 stuff came in and I will pick up a tank tomorrow and set it all up Fri evening so I can start running it Sat AM.

list of plants so far, nothing hard.

Hygrophilia Siamensis
Hygrophilia Stricta
Ludwiga Repens
Rotala Indica
Alternanthera reineckii regular
Ludwiga white
Val torta
Bacopa Carolinaian yellow flame
Java fern
Anubias barteri
Dwarf chain sword
Crypto tropica bronze
Crypto cordata
Flame moss

plan is to attach the moss to the outer branches of the as of now floating wood.

I would like to add I hate the eco complete and wish I had just done blasting sand.

I like this new layout!! If only the wood could stay where it is now it'd be a cool optical illusion :)

I like my Eco, I've had it for years...not sure about my blasting sand yet

Co2 up and running. Spend the weekend dialing it in. Have a pH pen coming. Should arrive Sunday. I’m getting to old to try and differentiate between like colors.

Cool! I don't understand the 2 bubble counters (I'm a non co2 person). Can you please explain?

I can't wait to see all the plants take off
The second one is just if you add a 2nd tank.

Very cool scape!

At best, mine will drift and set into an acceptable layout.. If I'm lucky. LOL
