set up my 55 gal - criticism wanted!
i only have 3 glofish in here at the moment.
im looking to add more fish / plants if you cold recommend some that would be awesome :-D
im thinking about getting some freshwater pipefish, 2 or 3
Get some more live plants, vals would do great in there and grow to the height of the water, cant say I really like the white substrate, maybe add some darker rocks to contrast and reduce the white level, I found a bag of mexican river rocks from big box stores actually look pretty good once you get them wet.
Are those the new glotetra? I'd get about 5-6 more for that tank, they like having a lot of friends, plus IMO a large group of fish swimming together is an awesome sight.
Plants, I'd take out the anubias from the sand.. It needs it's rhizome out of the substrate or it'll rot. A cool idea is to take some white cotton thread and tie it onto the driftwood, pretty soon it'll attach it's roots to the driftwood and you can remove the thread.
Other plants.. I'd look into:
-a surface plants like water sprites
-apongeton crispus- gorgeous and easy to care for
-bacopa- nice, most of them are low light
-sunset hygrophilia- I saw it in my store, if they have medium light the leaves turn pink which is pretty cool looking
-any other hygrophilia- awesome hardy low light plants
-moss, like java moss for example- you can make a carpet, tie it down to some flatish rocks.
i hate how bare my tank looks, off to go order some plants!
thanks for the suggestions !
Woo! They all look awesome. :)
Not too much, sorry. I have an aquaclear for my 15 gallon, old but works amazing still.
