    Default I'm back 75g project.

    So I've been off for... Gosh at least a year. Lots been going on personally with work, horses, school etc.

    About a year ago I built a custom stand for a 75g tank, purchased a Rena XP 3... Or 4 I'll have to check... I got lights for dusk/dawn and night. I just never got the tank.

    I have a very peaceful severeum that I would like to set up in the 75. I can not remember the scientific name. It's a turquoise severeum.

    I want to set up a somewhat biotope aquarium. I'm not messing with the water parameters.

    I would like to add some silver hatchets, corydora and maybe a dwarf cichlid or two.

    I want to add branches, some caves, a couple swords and vals (not sure if I'll go with real or false, I've had live plants but not sure if I want the maintenance that goes with it) and leaf litter. I'll be using sand substrate as well.

    Any suggestions for leaf litter? I've got some sycamore trees in the back yard.

    I've heard Oak leaves recommended before. Mainly because they are a common tree you can find basically everywhere, and because they remain stiff even after being waterlogged.

    welcome back owl.

    +1 to oak leaves. they work well for leaf litter and usually hold up well for a good period of time. best of luck with your new setup!
