One last question!
Okay, so- cleaned my new 30 gallon, to be cycled.
Thanks to Lupin, I have settled on this stock:

15 Cardinal Tetras
8 Panda Cories
1 Clown Pleco
2 Sparkling Gouramis

Any objections?
Is everything- (temperatures, bioload, etc) ok?

Sounds like a nice tank.

marinebiologist21 03-14-2008 09:00 PM

Why thank you!

"Is anyone here a marine biologist!!!??"


OT, good luck with the tank. A wise choice on the size of the shoal for the panda cories, they are so tiny it's almost scary so they will fit no problem. Too cute for words, honestly.

I am so happy it will all work out.

I like the sound of that 30 ALOT :D does anyone want the stock from my current 29g so I can start over? lol

you doin sand or gravel MB?

marinebiologist21 03-15-2008 09:27 AM

Thin gravel I find works best.

Are you planning on putting any live plants in the tank? I hope you'll post some pictures when you have it set up, I'd love to see it. Remember to stock slowly once the tank has cycled though :)

I've never had live plants... which ones do you recommend?
I know snails often are attached- is this okay for my tank?
Indeed! I plan to add the Gouramis first, then Cories, then Cardinals, THEN Pleco.
Is that a good order?
It will take me 4 weeks to completely stock it like this.

EDIT: I'll also be sure to add some photos.
