    Well ladies and gentlemen it is official tank #2
    So its with great pleasure to start this second journal. Fortunately this time I'm not starting it after already setting everything up like my 55g.
    Hopefully everyone will be just as excited as me to see the outcome unfold for this beautiful 40B!

    The setup/layout will be driftwood and leaved bottom not much rock maybe large smoothed river rock... I wanted the larger floor space for bottom dwellers to freely move around so I don't want any sharp pieces of slate.
    I will go collect DW from my local river and use several small branches all mixed up to replicate them fallen into the water and settling

    Substrate will be a soil sand mix.
    Haven't decided on plants yet but there will be Amazon frogbit for sure and possibly some type of Echinodorus and Eleocharis.
    I want a seemingly mirror image of the typical blackwater lake/slack water found peppered throughout the Amazon basin. So any plants I add will have to do well in low lighting.

    I will put my Emperor 400 modified with ceramics and poly on the end of the tank flowing length ways and will modify as I need to slow the current to a creep to replicate the slow moving waters.
    already have heater and some fluorescent light fixtures just need a glass hood.

    I need a very tight lid because I will be adding a rather large school of Carnegiella strigata.

    Other fish will be smaller tetras like neon and rummynose. Also a nannostomus sp.

    As well as corydoras species from the area/habitat I mentioned If I can find and afford of course haha..

    I'll take my time with adding fish so I'll save up if need be. Other then that I'm thinking of getting a spotted raphael catfish and about 4-6 Apistogramma cacatuoides

    My next task is to figure out the stand. Options are to make it myself or go to goodwill see what could work there.

    Grats on the new tank. I can't wait to see what you do with it.
    Think with logic and rationality more than emotion. Act with moderation and consideration. Contemplate ideals and realistic goals and weigh out possibilities and options. Temper not with personal delusions or false hope but learn to accept and move on.

    Tell her it's a healthy obsession. It's keeping you at home instead of being out all the time, lol.
