Well its after Christmas now and I finally got the tank moved to it's place. It has been loaded with play sand as a substrate and filled with water. I placed a few plants in last night, but the water is still pretty cloudy. I will be getting a bacteria supplement tomorrow at work.

I went to get a water sample tested, but the vial I had it in cracked in route so nothing was left when I got there.

But here is an updated picture.



Plants as of now are: Anubius Contiguous, Dwarf Hairgrass, Anacharis, and amazon swords

My stocking list will be: 9 Harlequin Rasboras
7 Penguin Tetras?
6 Black Khuli loaches(Unless you guys tell me otherwise) or Peppered Corys

I am taking suggestions on any others. I want to provide the best home for the fish I will have.

Thanks, Jwillis

A few floating plants would be nice with what you have.

What kind of flaoting plants do you reccomend? Also did you have any reccomendations for fish or see problems with my list in the last post. I do plan on getting more plants.

Water lettuce is a good one so is water sprite :D
I like both (I love duckweed, but they are way to invasive :D)

Agree, Water Sprite is my favourite floater. Dwarf Watter Lettuce is nice [I can't get it locally]. Brazilian Pennywort, a stem plant, actually grows well floating. Amazon Frogbit is another floater. Click shaded names for our profile with photos.

No problem with mentioned fish, and there is room for more as things establish. Stay with quiet and sedate though, as that is what you are starting out with.

Which do you think will be a better bottem scavenger corys or khuli loaches? Is there another schooling/shoaling fish that would look good with the harleys?

I'm super jealous of that tank and wood! Great selection. I can't wait to see how you grow plants on the wood.

Khuli loaches are notorious for hiding all the time, personally I prefer corys. Mine are constantly active.

Iv had polkadot loaches ( botia kubotai) for around a week now, and they have never been anything but active, and certainly not hiders! They rest at times but always in the open at the front of the tank.

Compatibility wise with your others I haven't looked at though.
