a few questions about stocking and gravel...
yet another thread...i really am addicted to this site :-P
so i have a few more questions...yes, MORE questions. first, how much gravel (kilos) do you think i need for a 15 gallon tank (24 x 12 x 15 inches...approximate measurements)
second, can anyone recommend some nice south-east asian bottomfeeders that would be at home in a 15 gallon? i wanted dwarf chain loaches, but having seen the exorbitant prices of them, i have a nasty feeling i won't be able to afford it :cry:
third, i might need to get some ferts for my plants, and although someone recommended seachem flourish comprehensive i'm not sure u can get that in australia (will have to check at my lfs) so can you tell me what a good fert is that is available in aus?
i'm sure i have more questions, but can't think of them right now...
in the meantime, if there aren't any loaches i can afford or fit in my tank, would a bristlenose pleco be ok, or some corys? i WAS going for a SE-Asian biotope, but i'm starting to think that won't be practical. and i miss having plecs and corys, my fave fish :-(
i was feeling really discouraged about this hobby when my pandas died, but then i started thinking about an asian biotope and felt motivated again. now i'm feeling discouraged again. :-?
