Ridgenesss 40 Gallon Breeder
I was thinking about giving this journal thing a shot.
My tank was completely set-up for the most part by the time i joined the ac but i slowly upgrade over time.
Right now i have my 40 breeder with about 8 pieces of driftwood, 4-5 larger rocks and some smaller rocks scattered around.
It's planted with banana plant, broad leaf ludwigia, needle leaf ludwigia, water sprite, wisteria, rotala and creeping charlie. All lighted by an aquatic life dual lamp t5 with a 6k and roasate bulb. I dose most of seachems liquid fert line according to there chart and have been pleased.
For filtration i recently upgraded from an eheim ecco series canister and a fluval u2 in tank filter to a single fluval 306. The new 306 is very nice.
As far as my inhabitants i may be pushing it number wise, but will be uprading soon. Plus none of my fish get very large and i maintain a very clean tank.
2 pearl gourami
6 harlequin rasbora
4 rummynose tetra
1 yoyo loach
2 subfasca loach
1 cae (getting him out asap)
8 assorted corydoras
2 cherry barbs
My tankmates get along very well and have plenty of hiding places to explore.

Id say an upgrade would be good as you have a few species there who should really be kept in shoals of 6-8+
All the best in your journal!! Posting pics is always a good idea!!My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

I felt the need to purchase mine. He was in a tank completely crowed with tetras, alone and looked miserable. Since he's been in my tank he grew extremely well and is very active.
