12 Gallon Stocking
I need some ideas for a 12G stocking. I have everything figured out, except for fish. I have some basic ideas. I am open to any suggestions. I dont care if it a single shoal of fish, or a small variety.
I plan on this:
Black Stone "pyramid" in a corner
Some live plants
A small sunken-ship ornament
Some DIY caves made from pvc.
I just want some lists of fish, inverts, etc. :)
Edit: Shoot, I put this in SW. Could someone move it to FW?
I was gonna say...driftwood in a SW setup? LoL.
But do you have any thoughts?
Well see initially I thought "In a 12 gallon, all those decorations will really cramp the tank''.
I have a feeling you'll have trouble fitting caves, plants, sunken ships and pyramids tastefully inside a 12 gallon. Not to mention the driftwood which will be pretty large.
As far as livestock goes, try thinking of a vampire shrimp and possibly a mystery snail or two to cover the invertebrates.
The aquarium measures 21" long, 11" deep and 18" tall, so It can probably hold most of the things. If it seems too crowded, I will probably take out the rock formation if push comes to shove.
I am defiantly getting a mystery snail, and hopefully a shrimp. I really want Cherry, but I would need to find some.
My lfs only has ghost shrimp.
A further one away has cherry shrimp though. :)
maybe some shrimp, a school of tetras or rasboras and a dwarf gourami or a couple of livebearers.
i think you should get some kuhli loaches. they are nice. maybe a school of neons or green tiger barbs. dwarf cichlids are fun too. rainbow fish would stand out in that tank since it has a lot of black. maybe skunk loaches, deffinately cories, glass fish, killifish, rams, penguinfish, cherry barbs, rummynoses, blind cave fish, black neons, red tailed shark, and harlequin rasboras. good luck chosing! :D
