This is my second post on this forum.
I initially started with a very small 37L tank, and had various fishes. However I always wanted a larger tank.
I finally decided to upgrade my setup. Equipment
Tank: Boyu EA 80. 32 x 16 x 22 inches (LxBxH). Its 148L, approx 40 gallons.
Filter: Boyu Overhead filter that came with tank, rated for 740L/hr and Eheim Classic 350 canister filter rated 620L/hr
Lights: Default lights with Boyu, 20wx2 tubes
Substrate: Ada La Plata 16Kg.
Decoration: A big driftwood, will add some lava rocks later
Background: Plain black Planned fishes
14 Cardinal tetras
14 Bloodfin tetras
1 Albino(white) brislenose
4 Discus to be added later after few months after tank has settled Plants
Need suggestions here Plan
The plan is to set it up as a low tech planted tank. I don't want to overcrowd the tank with plants.
Currently I am having the table made for the tank. Once the table is ready, I will set up the tank with plants and let it to cycle for a week. I then plan to introduce the Cardinal tetras and brislenose followed by Bloodfin tetras after a week or two.
The table should be ready this weekend and i would be having it setup next week.
I will share pics as and when the setup process progresses.
Please give your views on my plan.Update 1:
Table construction, wiring, house painting all done. The tank has been setup. Filter setup is pending.
