I'm doing a bit of rethinking of my plan for my 30 gallon hexagon tank.
My original plan involved keeping rummy nosed tetra's *my favorite fish* but it seems that they wouldn't do so well in my taller tank, they need more room to swim around.
I'm excited to say that my PH, which I thought was 7.8 is actually 7.4 *cheers*!!! yay for reading test results wrong *at least in this case...*
So... I need some help here in stocking options.
30 gallon Hex
Planted - though not very densely, as I tend to like a bit more open space in my planted tanks.
Eco Complete Substrate
The tank is "new" however all the plants and driftwood come from a well established tank. I've got a couple of zebra danio's in there to facilitate any type of mini cycle the tank may go through. So I've got a couple of weeks at least to contemplate inhabitants.
My goal for this tank is color and personality. I'm truly bummed about not getting to keep the rummy's, but such is life... right?
A pair of German Blue Rams - love their personality and color.
Cherry Shrimp or Amano Shrimp
I'd like to stay away from: Platies, Mollies, Goldfish, Guppies
I'm really WIDE open for suggestions. I'll try to get some pictures up soon.
