OK, i've spoken to a few of y'all on the fish chat and i've been talking about getting a new tank. well, i got it today. It's a Fluval Duo Deep Extra 1000 (see here: http://www.seapets.co.uk/product-det...egory/965.html
) I also managed to blag an upgrade to a Eheim professional 1 filter (external), as i've been told that these are considerably better than the standard fluval ones.
So i bet you can all guess what's coming next... stocking questions!
The two definite inclusions will be My pair of Koi
Angels and my Plec (bog standard variety...) as these two were the whole reason that i bought the tank. other than that it's play time!
My thoughts, influenced by those on chat, have been:
Brian the Plec.
Some cories (species/number?)
Some marbeled hatchetfish. (number?)
Blue rams, a pair?
Green barbs (number? - will they attack the angels, or would it be fine with 5-6 to keep each other busy?)
something that schools, maybe some tetras - congo or emperor perhaps.
As you can see, it's all a bit fluid at the moment and i'm not really sure of any of the needs/compatibility of these fish bar the ones i've already got, so feel free to throw in ideas, or criticisms etc.
Oh, the decor is going to be two large chunks of vine wood with plants intertwined amongst them, as well as some caves made from slate. On a black gravel substrate. Should look nice if i can pull it all off!
So thanks for letting me get all enthusiastic and helping me make this the best tank i've done yet.
(P.S If anyone fancies it, i'll put up a photo diary of the progress in fw pics.)
