    Post future 10 gallon native

    Ok so some of you know my parents rent so I can only have one tank but when they buy a house I am going to upgrade my ten to a 20-30 and I want to turn my current ten into a florida native tank when that happens I have a aqua-tech 30-60 I plan on keeping and I have about a inch or smooth brown gravel but I will probaly put some sand in to and just mix together. I have mosquitofish I could put in but I kinda want it to be a more r less grow out tank because m dad wants to do a aquaponics thing and I could put big fish in there bu this is what I want in there, a couple blue fin killis, a sunfish or two, ghost shrimp, mudminnows or brook siversides.

    Sounds good. Though those sunfish, even little will try and take out everything else in that tank. So you might want them to be by themselves until your dad is ready to put them in his aquaponics system. Then get the other fish.

    What should I feed them, I think I am going to do green water and mosquito larvae from bird baths and stuff when I move, I want to catch everything I put in including plants, should I cast net or dip net?

    I don't know about cast netting or dip netting. But that sounds about right. Make sure you know if it is legal to move the plants you want in Florida. I know it is illegal to move hydrilla so if you got some and a game warden stopped you it would not end well. Make sure you know what hydrilla looks like before you go getting plants. One fish to think about that you might have to buy would be the pygmy sunfish. Very tiny, would be good in a ten gallon and look amazing. They are native to Florida but I don't know the range of their habitat.

    Darters are one of my favorite native fish. The swamp darter would be my pick but you never know what you'll get when you go to catching things. I'm not sure, but I think the greenside darter also inhabits Florida. That's a pretty one.

    No, I'm wrong about the greenside. Go with the swamp darter.
