(p.s. that is not real bamboo, they are fake as I know bamboo is not aquatic).I think I am going to do the shrimp cycling method. Does the shrimp method smell bad? The tank is in the dining room and I don't know how we would feel about icky smells coming from the tank while we are trying to eat!
For stocking I think my plan is: 1 dwarf gourami 5 kuhli loaches 6 cory cats (3 peppered and 3 panda) 7 harlequin rasboras. Should that be enough room for everyone? Thanks!
The tank looks good. I think it would look even better with live plants in it. You talk about waiting till you have it cycles to add them. You know they would help tremdously with the cycling process and as for the shrimp cycle. I have heard (never cycled with anything but live plants) that it does stink.
