29 gal tank reset.
If you are interested, this thread are pictures of the tank as it is now: http://www.tropicalfishkeeping.com/a...-needed-96960/
I want to reset my 29 gallon tank. My plan is to turn the clown loach over to the LFS (and hopefully get a store credit), replace the substrate with sand, remove the UG filter, and remove one of the big swords, 29 gal is too small for the plants.
I have two big pieces of mopani driftwood (Medium by Thatpetplace standards, but bigger than I expected). I would like suggestions on smallish plants that require low light, as well as some aquascaping ideas. I would like to fit the driftwood in the tank. Fish stocking ideas would be welcome as well.
I have 3 neon tetras, 1 clown loach, 2 otos, 5 or so platys (they keep multiplying). Plants are 2 swords and 1 apogenaton that I think is suffering from the sword takeover.
I have soft water, I don't remember the exact number, and a pH of 7 from the tap, and ph of 6 in the tank.
Thanks so much.
In soft slightly acidic water you could have any of the crypts (a few species are in our profiles); the pygmy chain sword for a lighter green contrast, and it spreads quickly; Anubias and Java Fern; Java Moss on the wood. And of course floating plants always.:-) The attached photo of my present 29g with some of these will illustrate.
Aponogeton is not always an easy plant, it needs a vegetative rest period for one thing.
How many of these plants would be best for the tank?
