    Ooops, dropped some more cash today: 3 chunks of driftwood, some more sand, and a fresh bottle of Prime.

    I'm doing a sand bottom in deference to the clown loaches and their tender barbels.

    Ok, I've got my hardscape in, and all filters and heaters are up and running.

    Excuse my lousy photography skills:



    My plan is to do some low light easy plants: Mostly java ferns and java moss.
    I've decided my pathetic lights are going to be to puny for even these, so I plan on going and getting new lights this week.

    In the meantime, I am doing my first fishless cycle! I've cycled plenty of tanks in my time, but this will be my first fishless cycle. Wish me luck.

    Some other plants that you might be interested in are Cabomba, anacharis, and wisteria (sorry if I misspelled all of those). They grow fast and under low light. They also look great. I just have the light that came with the tank kit that I got. It is t8 lighting but works great for these plants.
    Lots of tanks. Some tanks are planted. Fish include community and bettas.
    2 Dachshunds. Angel (Red) and Cookie (Chocolate Dapple).
    Shiny Things and Beauty the rabbits.
    RIP Princess and Max the Dachshunds, Tiger and Ping Pong the rabbits, and all the fishes from when I was a newbie.
    It is Ldoerr NOT Idoerr.

    I haven't really decided yet. LFS usually has Turquois and Boesmani. I like both of those, but I'm also thinking some Millenium would be cool.

    I plan to keep two schools of 6 rainbows each, and probably 5 clown loaches.

    I'm starting to rethink my stocking plans, I generally like to keep a fairly light bio-load. I'm starting to think 5 clown loaches might be a bit much. Thinking about perhaps going with yoyo loaches or maybe just a big school of cories.

    Thoughts??

    I aggree. Clown loaches can get up to a foot long, so if you kept five your tank would probably not be able to put in rainbows. I think you should go with yoyos. There nice fish and are half the length of the clowns. Keep us posted!

    Update time: I just put 5 narrow-leaf java ferns in. I'll try to get some pics after things settle down again.

    On the cycling front, ammonia is being consumed on a daily basis, nitrites are still high, but it's only been a week. So far everything seems to be progressing smoothly.
