So I setup my tank and started stocking a couple weeks ago and thought i'd share the progress.
90 gallon semi planted with water wisteria. 3 types of amazon swords, hornwort, narrow leaf ludwigia (I think) and some java moss tied to rocks and a bit to driftwood.
Using white sand and flourite as substrates.I dose API leaf zone flourish one or twice a week but i will cut back now and see if the plants will continue growing without it.
For fish I have 6 platies 1m:5f
2 elelctric blue rams 1m:1f
2 german blue rams 2m
The first day I added the fish i found two small platy fry swimming but with the lack of floating cover I fear they have been eaten. I am planning to propagate my water wisteria and use the clippings as floating cover along with my piece of floating driftwood.
ALSO my female electric blue and a male german blue have paired up and have laid eggs after only a couple weeks last night. I was sure the electric blues were too small to spawn but apparently not. You'll see how small they are when i post pictures either today or tomorrow I hope. I was thinking of starting another thread with the start to finish setting up the tank so keep an eye out for that too if you guys are interested.
