New tank, what to do

Recommended Posts

Hi all, just got a 3x15x18 for the lounge room but as always the big question is what to stock.

It's planted and running an Aquael internal filter.

I considered putting my pair of red leopard discus but they are happy in the tank they are in so don't want to move them.

I have seven types of guppies and endlers and eight types of shrimp so I don't need more of them and geos don't go well with plants.

So the question remains what to stock.

What do other people have in their planted tanks?

Would anyone donate some interesting fish to a great home? lol.

Any ideas appreciated as i am at a loss.

Cheers mick

Nice idea but I just sold most of my rainbows and the rest love the pond.

I have wanted a rainbow display but I would have some gudgeon types as well and every time I set one up i lose interest fairly quickly lol.

I have a nice 2ft wide by 18 high piece of mangrove root that would look great.

I will keep that idea in mind but keep them coming.

Haha yeah I can be a little fussy lol.

Now ya talking, i could add a pair of angels or discus into that mix but what colour?

I have panda cories in my daughters tank growing out so I can steal them haha, or maybe go with a different type but pandas look cool.

And I think [MENTION=313]ssdiscus[/MENTION] has some nice rams at the moment but I'm scared to go to his place unless I take the credit card with me lol.

So the tank is cycled, i will be adding some Val along the back wall preferably twisted if not them corkscrew.

I'm thinking tetras, a pair of angels and cories, totally undecided on what types but it's a start.

Stole a nice piece of wood from another tank and I will be attaching some moss and crested java fern if i can find some.

More pics to come as it grows in, i will be using the easycarbo and provito method for the plants and have some Dino dung under some as well.

Cheers mick
