Okay so originally I had planned to go with a Naturally Planted tank with this aquarium, but after not being able to find some good consistent help, I decided to scratch that idea and go with a decent natural rock and sand tank. I am planning on buying some Zebra rock next time I'm in Slidell, La (closest local fish store), I live in Carriere, Ms. So what I need help with is just simple things now. I plan on doing a Fish-less cycle on this aquarium, but its inhabitants I'm unsure about . I wanna do a main center piece fish or a breading pair and some shrimps (being shrimp dominated tank). This is the tank set up starting from top down. Tetra 10 gallon starter hood with 2 General Electric (13 Watt, 6500k) compact florescent bulbs, Aquaclear50 (250 g.p.h) filter with just the sponge and bio-media in it (as I don't have a carbon pack for it yet), Tetra 5-15 submersible preset heater (keeps water at around 75 degrees), painter's tape background ( it's what I had on hand don't look to bad ), Tetra starter tank 10 gallon, substrate is pool filter sand. Ill be using Prime as water conditioner, I have a Api Master test kit. The foods I have on hand is all Omega One food (color enhancing tropical flakes, blood-worms, shrimp pellets, algae tabs), as this is what I feed my other fish. On a side note I am running a (what I would call successful) 29 gallon community tank it has 8 neon tetra's, 6 endlers, 6 peppered corys, and one bristle-nose pleco. I have only lost 6 fish, 2 for unknown causes and 4 endlers that like to swim up the gravel vacuum(suicides I call em).
