I finally got my new 150 gallon tank, stand, filters, and light. I have no clue about what I am stock it with but have a basic idea based on what i was going to put in a 125. It came with two Eheim filters also. It will still be a little while until i get everything up and going since i want to restain the stand based on the wood color in my house and wait for some of the decorations i ordered to arrive. I plan on the tank being heavly planted. I bought the tank and everything off craigslists for $380 so i think i got a pretty good deal. If anyone has recomendations please let me know :)
What fish do you like?
First thing I would do is find out what fish you can put in there. Get water readings. How hard is your water? pH level?
That will narrow down your selection to keep down cost so you can use your tap water.
I'd suggest these fish if you have the right water parameters...Not necessarily together...just general...
I like those three fish :)
I really like Angel Fish, Angelicus Loach, zebra loach, Cherry Barb's, whiptail catfish, and hatchet fish. I think they will go together but not 100% sure. The PH balance is roughly 7.5 (i think a little lower but closer to 7.5 than 7). I really like some of the different "eels" but don't think they would go with any of the fish above.
I have a 60 gallon tall tank that i am looking to stock as well. It has an Oscar and a cichlid in it now but can't reall stock it until i find a home for those two fish. I really like planted tanks so not really looking to keep them but need to find them a nice home first :)
I really like Tiger Barbs also so I might put them into the 60 gallon.
another question, i bought 2 250W heaters for the tank....will they work?
