school of 5 panda corys

I have had it up and running for about 2 weeks and the parameters are pretty much what I would expect. As for live plants I have a few java ferns and a bit of java moss. I will be moving some dwarf sag and Cabomba into the tank once I have time to harvest some of it. The only reason I ask is because I plan on getting alot of my fish/plants at my cities fish auction (Oktoberfish as they call it) and hope that it will be okay to stock by next sunday
Ive allways used neon tetras, they dont produce that much waste, are very hardy, and should help "ease" you through the cycle instead of jumping through it and risking losing your fish. You could also use the fishless cycle but I personally never have.

I used a red eye tetra as my ammonia source by the time the cycle was done it looked like a bluegill
