Advice on a 30gallon tank setup
This is my first tank I am setting up. I have done a good deal of research, but I would like some opinions before I dive in to buying things. I am getting a 30 gallon tank, and stand used. My plan is to get a Marineland Emperor 280 Filter, and a 100W heater. I am also thinking of adding plants to the mix. I was thinking of getting the following ....
2 x Java Fern
2 x Cryptocoryne Wendtii "red"
2 x Cryptocoryne Retrospiralis
2 x Anacharis or Anacharis narrow leaf
1 x Marimo Ball
1 medium Amazon Sword
Once my cycle is done, I am looking at getting about 6 black skirt tetras, but I am not sure what I should put with them. What are your thoughts? Also if you have any good places to order plants online, I would be happy to look. The options locally are slim to say the least.
