Hi all, here's my original thread in the Betta sub-forum. http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/b...ons-you-93521/
Essentially I'm starting up a 14 gallon biocube for the clinic that I work at. It will have live plants.
I'm thinking this for stocking:
-1 male Betta Splendens (will add last)
-6-8? Salt and pepper cories (Corydoras Habrosus)
-10-12? Blue Neon Rasboras (Sundanio axelrodi) Stocking questions:
- How many cories, and how many rasboras? Both like larger groups. The neon rasboras are small at 20-22 mm.
I will keep up the tank, however I don't want to overload it. All of the fish like a low current, so I ordered a Mini Jet 404 to replace the Biocube's pump as it supposedly fits and has adjustable flow. I thought this would be easier than worrying about sticking a sponge in the output of the tank, as it's a weird small opening and not sure if it would hang up over time or just pop out and then fly everyone around. Substrate question:
- My LFS recommends sand for the cories. They said if I use a small amount it shouldn't build up pockets. But then will there be enough to hold the plants down?
- Should I get Eco-complete and mix it together? Or just get some MTS? Plants:
- This tank has decent light built in but I want it to be low maintenance. I do plan on dosing with Flourish.
Anything else I'm missing?
