10 gallon project
I've recently started a 10 gallon project. I made a cement background with some caves and whatnot, and when it's done it'll be lightly planted with a few peices of driftwood. As of now it looks like this (I'm waiting to see if the pH drops with a small piece in a cup before I fill it, it's gone from 8.6 to 7.6 in 2 days and 4 waterchanges so I think it should be normal soon.)
(sloppy look was on purpose but doesn't look as nice as I'd hoped)
Here's what I need help with. I'm worried about the deminished footprint as far as stocking goes. I want to stock it with a M:F pair or M:F:F trio, but I'm not sure what to stock it with. I don't want schooling fish and I already have scarlet badis set-ups and dwarf puffers so I don't want more of them. My original plan was peacock gudgeons, but now I'm not so sure due to the space the background takes up. So basically I'm looking for any stocking suggestions. Any help/ideas are welcome.
