thank you again for the replies.. ive looked through the fish profiles some and think i am steering towards angel fish as my main fish in my tank.. now that we have that sorted we can start moving onto the rest..
i will probly go with dirt capped with some black sand.. ill use driftwood some rocks, plants,ill go for dwarf water lettuce or duckweed floating as i have both allready. ill put in marimo moss balls. 2 or 3. ill have a couple swords. some anubias,some java moss.some dwarf sag.im open to other suggestions on plants..
can we discuss other tank mates,then discuss the lighting and filters? i had my heart set on a fluval canister, possibly the fx5,but the profile says the angels like really still water,im asfraid a big canister will blow them all qround the tank,or can the flow be lowered to be good for angels?
im still not sure if goin for a 55 or 75. could you guys tell me how many of each fish i could fit in each tank??
id like a school of angels, it says i can keep ram chiclids with them so id like some rams.. would it be a good idea to have a school of corys also?
as mentioned prevoiusly,im goin to put in up to 4 rabbit snails and hope to get them breeding in my tank.ill also be breeding some red cherry type shrimp in a 5 gallon so ill throw in 10 - 15 and hope some survive,if not its ok as ill just throw more in,it will be free food for my fishes..
im still not sure what lighting ill need,what kind of canopy/hood will be good,ive never set up a tank before..all help is really appreciated..
i have one last question in this post,are thhem 55 tanks they sell in petco any good?they ciome with a stand cabinet to sit the tank on.im wondering if the stands are any good,are they reliable to take all that weight or is there begtter places i can buy tanks and stands from
