need help on designing my new tank
i finally got my 20 h fully cycled and everything, the substrate is very fine rock almost like a think sand i wanted to do planted but i have no idea what to do he is a pic of the tankhttp://i87.photobucket.com/albums/k1.../Picture-1.jpg any ideas are welcome
Get fake plants with a large piece of bog wood in the center as the main focal point also you may want a backround.
YOU MAY PUT SOUTH AMERICAN FISH SPECIES IN FOR THIS SET UP SUCH AS ANGELFISH OR RAMS
ok any thing else i rely want to do planted with a school of tigger barbs wad ya think
Well I suppose if you have the supplements and you get a really good light bulb I suppose you could do that
What kind of light do you have?
A species tank of tiger barbs sounds very nice, I know I want to do one eventually.
After the African cichlids, shell dwelling cichlids, another community tank, probably some more betas, a mantis shrimp...
one 18 inch 17 watt light and one 18 inch 13 wat light
30W over a 20 high. You'll probably be limited to low light plants on the bottom but that should be enough light for a good number of plants.
I have a 15W light on a 48 gallon tank. It's kind of a curse loving the low light level but wanting some plants.
A tiger barb tank sounds cool.
How about some tall plants in the back corners and a piece of driftwood in the center with anubias nana growing on it. Anubias are an easy low light plant. You can even mix fake silk or plastic plants with live plants. That's what I did in my 37 gallon and it came out great. Crypts are also easy low light plants.
Crypt spiralisis are good in low lighting and will grow tall. You can see mine in the back left corner of the tank in my avatar. Other crypts will work, as will anubias, java moss, and java fern. I'd add a few root tabs for the crypts.
What are the dimensions of the tank? It looks even taller than a standard 20H. I think tiger barbs would need more horizontal swimming space if the tank is 20" or less.
