    The last few weeks I have been researching hillstream loaches and thinking of maybe doing a river tank setup this coming winter. I have room for a 33 long (48 x 13 x 13), for a river tank. Because they need lots of algae, I could set it up in front of the windows, right next to the dual 29s. Something to think about....

    Look into the Crypts in those gel packs at Petsmart...completely pest free and you get a lot for the money. If you want some Hygro just let me know...Im sure it will be halfway out of the tank by Monday.

    Gad you are contemplating live plants, once you go planted you never go back!

    Check Tractor Supply if you have one, mine always has black diamond.

    I can attest to the growth on the HYGRO. No melt at all. they all took root and are really doing great. Thanks again, Jenn

    I agree with this. And I never thought I could grow plants. The tank is so much easier to care for with live plants - and so pretty.

    I've wanted to keep Hillstream loaches, too. Love those little guys. I hope you really consider stocking them. Would love to see them in someone's tank, and a river setup would be awesome. =]

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    Does "river setup" refer both to looks and flow?

    Yes. It is what they call a "unidirectional flow" tank, meaning a very strong current, going only in 1 direction, like a river or fast stream. It's done with a DIY PVC under-substrate manifold, pond sponges and powerheads. I would add an API Filstar XP-M for filtration.

    Aquascaping would be river rocks (very important for the loaches) and for me, a very few fake plants.

    They are pretty, but very sensitive. Hey, take credit where credit is do. I noticed them via your post. LOL..end of story.
    When in doubt, do a water change.
