Most stores you'll find: Albion's, Adolfo's, Bronze's and Panda.... Adolfo's & Bronze's get lil larger then the others, I think the Adolfo's will be a neat contrast to your Cherry's.

Eliminate what's causing you the algae (which is actually THE most healthiest thing to do for your fish). I'd not wanna add a pleco..just adds to the bio load for no real reason.

I dont know what causes the algae. I have 1.7 watts/gallon, I took my co2 out this time round, and I use ferts once a week. I can never find adolfis the ones that I come across at all of my fish stores are Albinos, Green, Bronze, Pandas, Peppered, Sometimes bandits.

That's green dust! No worries there, that's simply cause your tank is new, no stock=no CO2> Green dust is very common.
Also caused by low-no nutrition , what fetrs are you using on these plants in there?
FYI a pleco won't help that anyways

Java Ferns will grow you muchhh better when attached to rocks or dw NOT buried in the gravel

How many of each do you think I should get? 6 Cherries (2 male, 4 female) and 4 Corys?

No injecting CO2 will be just fine once you've stocked the tank with fish

You say you're already using ferts, what kind?

Naw I'd do 6 Cherry like you said but either 8-10 Cory maybe even handful of ghost shrimp.

I have a piece of driftwood in there. I could tie a couple of them to it. Otherwise I have no other place to put any of them. My other ferns grew nicely in the sand (it is sand just bigger grains), they produced all these little guys. How do I tie them? Whats green dust because I did the sand first then the plants. The plants have only been in there for 2 days the tank itself 3.
