Hey guys! Many of you have heard the great news that I finally got my amazon tank up that I have been working on since October of 2010. It is finally up with water, plants, and fish. Hopefully, my amazonian plant collection will grow extensively over the next several months.
I am going to wait at least a week, but probably more (just in case one of my reciently netted tetras gets sick) until I add new fish into the QT.
First, I probably need to special order some things, though. I am thinking about maybe going to a bare-bottom setup with a sponge filter, carbon filter, and a very regular water change schedule. In this thread, I am also trying to find an idea for an ideal QT setup. As a member on here pointed out, my last design was not a proper setup, and not as safe as it needed to be. If you guys have suggestions for that as far as filtration, water change schedule, and decoration if any, that would be great!
I do like to plan ahead, though. I am going to setup a survey for which fish you guys think I should Q next. Please note that the survey will be missing several species from my stocking list, because I am not going to special order Marbled Hatchetfish, Bolivian Rams, or Ember Tetra at this point. The rest are somewhat common. I will give approximate prices with the schools of fish.
Anyway, I may get some pictures up in awhile.
I can't garantee that I will choose the popular vote of the survey. I just want to see what you guys would do in my shoes. I will probably give more consideration into what you guys choose, though.
You guys do not have to, but I would like you to say why it would be neat to Q the species you guys vote for. Just for feedback.
