I think I could pull it off in a long tank like a 55.
That sounds like quite an interesting tank! But I think it is too much for a 40, which is not even a long. (The picture in the book-- The Complete Aquarium by Peter Scott-- great book btw), shows a 40 breeder I think, so I know this must be doable.
It's possible they could get some. There is one that has carried them in the past, had a whole brackish section but now only has the fiddlers.
Do you know what kind of filtration and lighting for the trees?? He suggests a Power filter, not sure that would even work given there is a big drop and not that much water.
Also how deep would the water be. Not to deep I suppose, as the fish can't really swim that well!
Do you have any ideas on how to keep the sand in its place.
I am getting really into this project, hope I can find the darned fish or that wrecks everything!
