Ok so were must I put the supports?
The glass will be 8mm thick.
Plants, I have been looking for floating plants for 2 months now and I cant find any , I am so frustrated
What do you think about my stoking? 6 angels, maybe 6 silver dollars(still thinking about them ), the pleco and the ghost knife.
I would like some adolfos's corys, would they be ok?
Or if not some other nice colorful bottom dweller.
On the tank build, i would start a new thread in the DIY Aquarium section, where other members with that interest are more likely to see it.
On the stocking, I would not include Silver Dollar. These eat soft plants, and particularly if you get the BGK you will want floating plants (you can order online if not locally). And I would really recomend live floating plants, since the dim light means lower plants will likely not manage, and live plants do make a big impact on water quality which is always important but perhaps even moreso with a BGK that is sensitive to water issues.
I personally would not combined angelfish and SD, that is more just my preference than anything concrete. I think a group of angels would be a beautiful sight, deserving of the "main space."
Substrate fish with the BGK should not be small; BGK is a predator, and at close to 20 inches and nocturnal and feeding from the substrate, small corys wuld likely be gone in short order.
