  1. Default Starting a cold water Asian biotope aquarium, looking for plants

    Planning on turning my 29 gallon tank into a tank for just dojo loaches and white clouds, with no heater. Sticking with the theme, I want plants that are native to the general areas where you might find these two fish in the wild (eastern asia, though not really southeat asia). Any suggestions are appreciated.

    A few to start:

    Crypts[Though most are SE & IIRC Wenditii is Sri Lankan], A. crispus, Rotala rotundifolia, Java ferns, Water Wisteria (hygro diff.)..
    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 don't think a 29 is anywhere near large enough for a group of dojos.

    Found a good video depicting their size

    125 - BGK, pictus cats, silver dollars, kissing gouramis, palmas bichir, delhezi bichir
    125 - Red severum, bolivian rams, Turquoise rainbows, irian red rainbows, loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, pearl gouramis
    90 - Congo tetras, african knife, elephant nose, spotted ctenopoma, upside down cats

    QTs - 29, 20H, 20L, 10

    I have pretty much this exact setup, but it's in a 4 ft long 65g tank, and I have five loaches in it with 11 white clouds. I originally had three gold dojo loaches in a 3 foot tank, but I decided that they were active enough to need more room as they got bigger.

    If you're going to try it in a 36" tank, I wouldn't go for more than three and I'd definitely get golden dojos rather than the regular ones. My goldens are slightly less long and far more slight in build than the wild type ones, and I've seen it elsewhere, too. The weather loaches get positively beefy, and I wouldn't even try them in a 30g.


    Java fern is a nice plant from around there, and the dojos don't seem to uproot it as much as they do some other options.
