    Cameron's 55g Tropical Aquarium Journal

    Briefing:

    Alrighty It's finally Christmas and i got my 55g Aqueon Tank "Deluxe" Kit. With Heater, Filter, sample stuff, ect.. I got the filter out and running on my 29g (HOF)... LOL ! So far its alright weird design with the 4-stage filtering but has high flow (325 GPH) Its kinda loud on the intake, it goes strait through the impeller from the tank to the filter, so no priming process(Cool, but a little louder..) But yea its there to help get it seeded for the big tank. I have one piece of Mopani? driftwood, and gonna get another. Going with some kind of aquarium sand, and gonna get a python also. I'm gonna go with the fishless cycle this round, (with pure ammonia).

    Stocking:

    Since this is going to be a tropical community im gonna go with:
    12 - 15 probably Neon tetras(maybe cardinals depending on availability)
    2 Dwarf gouramis (Im gonna try these guys out hoping they get along, if i can get females, how many..??)
    I might get a smaller school of some kind of tetra, (Under 2").
    6+ Emerald, or Peppered Corydoras

    I think thats about it with fish, give me some ideas or suggestions I'm sure on the Neons and Corys but not too sure about how gouramis are gonna work out, and idk which tetras yet but we'll see how full my stocking options are.

    Alright then guys and gals thanks for reading, PICS TO COME!!

    I have 1 blue and 1 gold gourami with cardinals and they do great, but they're females so that is more than likely why. So as long as you get female gouramis, you should be fine.

    A dwarf male would probably be okay.

    The stand's coming along slower than planned but still good, its all done, and were working on the canopy. its getting stained tonight. Tomorrow im going to hte pet store to get another piece of driftwood, 20' python(siphon), im going to look for some sand, i might get some basic plants, im not sure the tank has VERY low light, like under 1 watt per gallon. I'm thinking thats about it besides some chemicals to test and treat the water, i'll get some pics loaded later today so please read and post for me guys!! thanks!
