    Lightbulb 30 gallon Idea! Suggestions welcome!


    0 Not allowed!
    Check out my 30 gallon! My current stock is 10 black neons, 7 harly rasboras, 1 clown pleco. 90 gallons of filtration. water changes every week. 4 small cryptocoryne wendtii, lots of wisteria. Pretty low lit. Anubias lanceolata or congenis. Driftwood. My idea for the next few months for fish would be 5 or 6 brochis splendens (emerald green cory cat), or 10 corydoras habrosus or pygmaeus. Then, a pair of Apistogramma, either triple red or opal borelli. But this can change. Ph is 7.8, water a little hard. Suggestions and feedback for plants, caves, fish, and others are appreciated. Thanks! Hope You like it!

    I'd go with 10 of the habrosus or pygmaeus, the more cories you have the more active and comfortable they well be. Just make sure you leave enough room open that they can explore.

    I would pass on any Apistos with a pH like that, they really do need 7 or less.

    Maybe look at Bolivian rams or a male kribensis?

    I also agree the small cories would be better, or you could look at khuli loaches? 6-10 of them would work nicely
    My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

    A question about the apistos. I've read in a lot of places that they are hardier than rams, and are better off in higher pH than they, although ideal pH IS pretty low. Scottish fish, do have some experience with them?

    Those look really really cool!!!! Wow those look cool... Can't believe how cool those look...
    EDIT: Are they the same things as Yasuhikotakia Sidthimunki? And Lady Hobbs, would I then have to forego dwarf cichlids and bottom dwellers?

    Yes, forget my earlier list. I didn't realize you were planning on so many species in one tank.

    Just a heads up: Yasuhikotakia Sidthimunki was re-classified this past December as Ambastaia Sidthimunki.

    Very nerdy details here & here.

    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.

    I can't tell how fine your substrate is, but if it isnt too rough then I'd go for the cories... great little fish. Big loach fan also...

    The gravel pieces are about 5-8 millimeters long. What are your favorite loaches?
