I am in the process of planning a large tank that I will be doing over the next few years. Hopefully the finished product will take no longer than five years (This is due to living arrangements. Water and actual fish will not be added until stable living arrangements are made. And seeing as how it will take me a couple more years to get my master's it will be a little while haha)
In any case, the tank will be no less than 100g. And the max will be 200g. Yes I know there is quite a bit of difference there, so for now we shall say it will be 180g 72x24x24. I'm looking for information regarding certain global areas for fish (oriental) and what plants would be good with them(live). I've been looking around websites all day and cannot find one that is specific for what I want. So then here would be the general info:
Tank Size: 180g 72x24x24
Water: Freshwater, conditions in which fish may be put together
Plants: Live, but unsure of which ones
Fish: Oriental, but unsure of which ones (Definitely want tiger barbs in the mix)
Breeding: Not interested in breeding
My questions are;
Which fish (native to oriental places) would be good together?
Which live plants would be good for a tank with those fish?
Which substrate should be used?
