The window treatments are coming but haven't been installed yet - i think another 4 weeks for those; for that aquarium i was planning on:Holy Cow! How long is that tank?!?! WOW! I'd cover those windows just to keep algae at bay.
I've totally lost my mind over your tank. I can't remember what the topic was. I'd want a bunch of clown loaches & some bigger barbs (drape fin? mascara?) in there. Big wood pieces?
So what's your plan again? I know you said after you moved but golly!
What's the substrate? I like the black. Is it sand or what?
I need to catch my breath...
10 clown loaches 20 zebra loaches 5 yoyo loaches
4 chocolate - reduced to 2 when sexed
maybe 1 flagtail prochilodus
4-6 laeracara speices (probalby curviceps or aguaria)
8 krobia xinguensis
some random pleco
maybe 10-20 hemiodus gracilis
target temp 78 target tds 70-90 (i can control the tds from 0 to 130)
maybe 30 serpae (not a good idea iwth the chocolate)
maybe 10-15 anostums (if i can find them affordable)
the substrate is stoney river estes - it is very similar to bbs; but supposedly aquairum safe. I used it for 5 years on a 29 and it never had any problems with bad bacteria like some of the cariba sea even though i have it extremely deep.
The 8x4 on the other side of the room - will be pictured next week. Here are updates on my 10g; while a lot smaller than the 10x4 is currently my favorite aquarium (1st picture is from the side looking long ways the 2nd is from front)
