Final additions 12 gallon tall
Okay so I have a fluval edge 12 gallon currently with:
6-glow light rasbora
3 panda cories
Few cherry and Amano shrimp
With some Anubis nana
Java moss and fern and few anarchis
I planning to add a few things. I just wanna have some critique on my new arrivals
I was planning on getting some jungle Val and dwarf sag, apparently they are both low light and easy to care for so ya :)
And for fish I was planning on getting
Trio of platies or group of male guppies
And Small school of cherry barbs, or some type of bottom or top schooling fish.
I wanna have something that wont interfere with the rasboras, because they school nicely in the middle of the tank, so I was thinking cherry barbs cause they'd stick lower to the drift wood and they're nice to :)
So can anyone give me a species that could do so^^
Id want some opinions perhaps of any good plants that are low light also!
Thanks for all help :) !!
sorry thats aqadvisor .com
First question, what is the species you call "glowlight rasbora?" This common name googled comes up with several species.
Second question, what are the water parameters? GH and pH here.
On the plants, I would not get Jungle Vall [in our profiles as Giant Vallisneria] for a small tank, this is an enormous plant. The Corkscrew Vallisneria will work, if you have medium hard or harder water. Dwarf Sagittaria is fine.
I would get 1-2 more panda cories. It's an okay school size, but a few more would be better.
Your tank already sounds pretty full to me otherwise, unless this is a micro fish, in which case tank mates can be a challenge.
Other than that, we need the info that Byron requested.
The rasbora is called rasbora hengeli Or trigonOstigma hengeli they are pretty small, and I'd think I'd just want some plants instead. My ph is 7 and my hardness is 7, I'm kinda just looking towards a nice planted tank, my plants are limited though due to my lighting :( the plants I currently have are growing nicely and no bad signs! Except my red crypt I realized recently that it's more needy when it comes to light so it's slowly melting it appears :( and what if I got the jungle Val for my 55 gallon African cichlid tank? And is corkscrew Val lowlight as well?
I was thinking some corkscrew Val for my background, and some GREEN crypts and dwarf sag for my foreground. And possibly another Anubis of some sort :).. And side question, are all crypts and Anubis species easy and low light? (other than the red crypts)
Thx for all help!
Trigonostigma hengeli is fine. Just goes to show how useless common names are, this is sometimes called the Copper Harlequin, I used Hengeli Rasbora for the common name in the profiles. There is a Glowlight Rasbora that gets larger. The T. hengeli is a very nice fish, it is my personal favourite of the four similar species in the genus.
Crypts and Anubias and Java Fern and Java Moss are low to moderate light. Some crypts can manage in brighter, but the others don't. Your light is not low, from what I remember, so these shoudl be fine, and pygmy chain sword. It is only a 12g. Which brings me back to the fish, now that we know what they are, I agree with whomever it was, that the corys should be increased to five, and now I know the rasbora I would get another 3. That will do it for fish, but both will be better (happier, and healthier) with the additions.
