  1. Default New tank setup. Indecision is killing me!

    Hiya folks. Okay so I'm back with a greatly reduced tank size I have just started my fish less cycle and I'm having endless fun deciding my stock list. I could reaaaally really use some ideas about fish and the number I can have in the tank.
    Okay first things first:
    Juwel Rekord 800 with internal filter and an allpondsolutions external (ef1000) so my filtration is sorted. Moderately planted with liquid ferts/co2 (very low tech setup)

    I will defiantly have shrimp at some point and I love corys...
    My fish wish list swings between the little schoolers like mosquito rasbora and the tiny clown killifish with no feature fish (worried they would get eaten) as I could have a ton of them
    To larger tetras and a feature fish.
    Problem is I literally cannot decide what fish I want or what my options are I really need some ideas of stock as well as sensible stocking levels as this is the smallest tank I've had before. It's 100l (80x35x45cms)

    Okay water parameters....

    Base (newly filled nothing added except wood and plants from established tanks, filter media is new)
    ammonia 0 nitrite 0 didn't bother with trates as only just started. Dosed 2ml of ammonia bringing it to 3ppm

    Day 2
    Ammonia 1ppm Nitrite 0.25 (? Already???)
    Dosed 1ml of ammonia

    Day 3
    Ammonia 1ppm Trites 0.25 dosed ammonia up to 3ppm

    Pics (water cloudy as I stirred up the sand faffing with plants) external filter being put in tmoro

    Very nice setup you have there. If you definitely want to have shrimp in this tank that will play a factor in what fish you stock with, as they may end up as food for larger tetras.
    Did you use any seeded media when starting your cycle?

    Yeah I was worried about shrimp that's why I mentioned them. We are looking at possibly mosquito rasbora and Galaxy rasbora or little killifish.
    No seeded media unfortunately but the wood and plants are all from established tanks which I'm hoping may help even just a little.

    I've always liked these guys, not as colorful as some other micro rasbora's but I like them ;-)

    I'm going to put endlers in my new 40 but they would work in your small tank as well ;-)



    Just some suggestions....... ;-)

    I LOVE those green rasbora but never seen them in any of my local shops.

    I really wanted a pearl gourami but I don't want my little fish to be a midnight snack haha. Any pretty fish you think would be okay with the little rasbora??
    One I really like are the threadfin rainbows and they are easy to get here. Love all the suggestions but still not sure how many to get...worried I'll overstock.

    Silbar I can't figure out the trites either...it was 0 when tank was setup and my tap water is at 0 too so somethings happened lol

    So far I'm looking at maybe (not getting all of them these are just ones I like)

    Chilli/mosquito rasbora
    Galaxy rasbora
    Clown killifish (teeny tiny)
    Pygmy corys
    Endlers because the colours are stunning

    And would love either a pearl gourami or Krib or something but dunno if this would work due to tiny fish?
