LOL time flies by when your watching your aquarium :) So if I was to add panda cories, I will have to add them later, when the tank settles in? I might just add more peppered cories. Do you think otos will come in handy in this tank. I was thinking of instead of a dwarf gourami, I could add a few platies. They would produce little fry that the angels could hunt and it would keep the angels healthy. My LFS has gorgeous juvenile 2-3" tall angels for 4 for only 12$. There are koi, black, silver, etc all to choose from ! I want to have the tank right now, however, I have to wait at least a month until, I finnish moving my room to the basement.(we're finishing my basement and so there is a room downstairs, so it will be my bedroom and my old room will go to my brother) it is good because my two other tank are downstairs. All my animals will be easier to manage on the same floor XD (BTW: I also have 2 cockatiels and 2 budgies, all of which are sitting on me and the computer right now.) ANYWAYS (that was off topic) I always wanted to know what kind of fish is your profile pic? (speaking of off topic lol)

Livebearers are very prolific, watch out. The avatar fish is a spotted woodcat, Tatia perugiae, from South America. I have three in my 115g, one photo in the set shows two of them peeking out from their tunnel in the wood. They are very nocturnal, spending all day in wood tunnels (hence their common name), but they quickly learn to appear at feeding time even during daylight. They like water current, so all three are in the standing wood at the far left of the tank where the filter outflow is positioned. B.

That is one of the coolest catfish I have ever seen! Ya you are probably right about the livebearers, I think I will stick with the dwarf gourami.

Between the tetras and the angels, I don't think you'd be faced with a population explosion from the platies. Sure, some might survive to adulthood but I don't think it will be at such an alarming rate as to really be worried.

Ya thats what I figured too, thanks iamntbatman. Does anyone us www.aqadvisor.com ? It is really helpful when stocking a tank and I am pretty sure that a member of this forum created it. If you havent ever been to that site you should really try it, it works great. Although the site does not take into acount the amount of plants in the tank as to the filtration capacity, it only bases the filtration capacity of your tank on the size of the ank and which filter it has... anyways enough of my 2 cents. For my 40 gallon tank, I was thinking that since I am going to get a big tank, I'd might as well just get a 55 gallon tank. They are much more available around my area and they are bigger too ! therefore, territorial issues among the angelfish, won't be too serious and if ever my angels spawn it will be a pretty good size for just letting the parents raise their young in that tank. Does anyone know how much a 55 g usually costs? I dont need a super fancy bow front, high-tech tank, only a basic rectangular 55 g :) I will also check on craigslist and Annonces Kijiji Montréal : Les petites annonces classees gratuites Québec for some cheaper tanks. LOL I just read through the entire thread and it started with me wanting to put GBRs in my 29g, then went on to talking about apistos, then plants, and now its at getting a whole new 55g with angels and tetras :)

Hello again, its been a while... So I was browsing through "les petits annonces" on Annonces Kijiji Montréal : Les petites annonces classees gratuites Québec and I found an equipped 112gallon (72" X 20" X 18") aquarium for sale with the stand, a fluval 404 filter, a aquaclear 500 (or something like that). It is only 500 dollars. I am pretty sure 100 gallon tanks are usually much more expensive. I was thinking of a few stocking lists and I came up with this (BTW I used http://www.aqadvisor.com ):
- 4 angelfish
-8 black skirt tetras
-8 peppered cories
-8 congo tetras
-6 dwarf rainbowfish (3m,3f)
-2 dwarf gourami (1m, 1f)
-6 platys (2m,4f)
-3 bolivian ram (1m, 2 f)
-6 ruby barb
-6 otos
-8 brown pencilfish
- 20 amano shrimp (possibly)

temperature--->25C or 78F
pH--------------->6-7.5
hardness------->5-15dH
filtration capacity = 101% (plus plants)
recomended water change schedule = 35% per week
stocking level = 91%


Surprisingly I am understocked, however, i dont plan on adding any more fish to that list! I plan on having tons of plants (especially swords and java moss). In my opinion, that is the coolest stocking list i have ever seen and i cant wait!!!!!!!!
This is the order in which I will set up the tank:
-fill tank
-heat tank
-fill with plants
-black skirts
-platy
-congo
-barb
-rainbows
-pencils
-cories
-otos
-angelfish+ gouramis
-rams
-possibly shrimps
sound good?
(+ many water tests in between !!!)

This is used equipment, so... You won't need more than a canister filter if this is to be heavily planted as you mention. Is there a heater? Just a couple thoughts. B.

Ya there are a few heaters included. If you want this is the link: Aquarium 100 gallons, Its in french, so I dont know if you'll understand it, but it is gorgeous. It was broken in the bottom left corner, but they got it professionally repaired and they used it for 3 years after that. The stand was custom made with pine. It looks so good. I find after a while of using filters they dont work as well so I will still use both filters and a lot of plants. I am picturing it now and it looks very good. I think I am going to go with sand as a substrate because it is cheap, I find it looks good, the substrate will probably be covered in java moss and other plants anyways. I CANT WAIT!!! :)

That's a really good looking stand! Did you get any more information about the lights? I'm kind of confused by the ad as it indicates there are two four foot tubes.
