I definitely will. Depending on the size...I'll either give it a good boil and/or bleach soak or put it in a larger container and pour boiling water over top and let it soak in the hot water. I had to do that with the rocks on the left side of the tank cause they wouldn't fit in my big stock pot.
YEah...hoping to fill in a lot of the area with plants. Not much going on with the tank at the moment. Cycling, growing algae, and watching hitchhiker snails crawl around. At least there is some livestock in the tank...lol
Cycle finished about 8 or 10 days ago...I've been feeding the bacteria ammonia all week...5ppm to 0 over night, nitrites zero too...so I did a 60% water change this morning and went fish shopping. Came home with 10 black neons, 8 Glowlight tetras, and 3 oto cats. The cats are working on my diatoms and the tetras are schooling together nicely. Very excited to have some life other than snails in the tank.
I would like to maybe add a couple more otos once these settle in, some more black neons and Glowlights, and maybe one more school of small fish. I also plan on getting a school of cory cats...possibly three line. That will likely do it for my stocking. Just looking for some suggestions on the third school. I'd like to get the first two schools up to around 12-15 each. I was thinking possibly some zebra danios, but something with nice color would be cool as well. I just like the zebras cause the pattern would be a nice contrast to the other fish, plus they just seem like neat fish to watch. Still working on planting the tank a little at a time too.
It's looking good I wish I had you aqua scaping talent, I'm never happy with my tanks. Hey were neighbors I'm in WV also thought I have no idea where your at I'm geographically challenged as I'm not from here. What kind of shrimp are you wanting to get? I have cherry reds, I love them though I'm thinking about starting a tank of blue ones.
