Hey guys, I'm planning on getting a 28 gallon tank *acrylic, comes with stand for 150, found it on craigslist* and I just wanted to see how this setup sounds. Dimensions of the tank is 36" L, 10" W, and 16" H. (Just curious, I did the calculations, and it came out to 24.76 gallons. I'll be sure to double check with the owner. Is it common for manufacturers to be a few gallons short?)
For substrate, I'll be using 2" worth of playsand. Filter wise, I'll be using 2 sponge filters, 1 moving water bed filter, and a marineland duetto 100 submersible filter, and a power head. I'll be using quite a few pieces of driftwood, probably 1 large piece as a center piece, 1 medium size piece and 2 smaller pieces. Plant wise, I'm looking at 4-5 bunches of anacharis, 4 wisteria, 2-3 java ferns, 8-10 anubias plants, 2-3 banana plants, and maybe 2 amazon swords.
Lighting wise I'm looking at the marineland LED double bright lighting system, with either the 600 lumens or 1200 lumens setup.
Stocking wise, I'm planning on 3 sunburst wag platys, 4 sterbai cory cats, 4 panda cory cats, 4 julii cory cats, 8-10 cherry shrimp, and 2 bamboo shrimp. Snail wise I'm looking at a few assassin snails, MTS, and a few pouch snails. Depending on how stocking goes, I might get some other fish as well *any suggestions? :D*
Heating wise I'm looking at aqueon heaters.
How does this sound as a check list?
