We have several community tanks all of which are heavily planted with -
Green Hygro, Temple plants, scarlet temple plants, Creeping jenny, ludwiga (several kinds) Water sprite, duckweed, Purple and Green Cabomba, Anacharis, About 6 kinds of sowrd plants, Java Fern, Flame moss, Jumba Sag, Moneywort, Hortwort, Pennywort, 2 types of Valesnaria and a few others that I forgot the name of. They live in super jungles.
All of our tanks are happy and healthy and the fish like their tank mates very much.
2 10 gallons - 1 king Betta about 4 inches long with 2 sarpae tetras and 3 assassin snails who will hopefully successfully breed for us. Random other feeder snails for the assassin snails. The tetras we never would have picked out but 1 came with a tank we bought off craigslist and we figured if he survived living in that tank we would get him a friend or two and keep him. We got another tetra but didn't know anything about them, Petco guy told us the black color would school with the red and he was wrong so the black went in the other tank and we got 2 more black to go with him.
Other 10 gallon - 1 king betta about 2 inches long, he's a baby we just got him a month ago. 4 tiny, tiny rasboro fish. 3 baby cories that are growing out in that tank - will move them to my bigger tank after they get bigger but afraid they won't get to eat with the piggies in the big tank and just put 2 otos in there from the assassin snail tank because I am afraid that otos are eating the assassin snail eggs. They will probably stay in that tank or move to the bigger tank with the other 6 or 7 otos.
1 divided 5 gallon with 1 male betta on each side. researching snails to go in their tank. Looks like Mini Rabbit snails are going to be their tank mates soon as we can afford to order them.
1 5 gallon with 1 male betta and 5 ghost shrimp
1 1.5 gallon with 1 male betta and 1 ghost shrimp
1 10 gallon with ?? red Cherry Shrimp - started with 40 about a month ago so at least 41 and 7 brand new baby platies we just scooped out of the 46 gallon
1 10 gallon with Ghost Shrimp/ extra plants - will house red cherry shrimp when we breed enough to move them over, ghost shrimp are just doing the upkeep to keep it cycled.
1 46 gallon - 2 turquoise rainbow fish, 2 bosmani rainbow fish, 3 tetras, 3 tiger barbs, 5 mollies, 5 albino cory, 2 peppered cory, 3 catfish, 1 pleco, 2 rosy barbs, 1 clown loach, assorted snails that came with the plants, 1 hillstream loach, 2 platies
29 gallon sorority tank -
13 female bettas, 2 rusty cory, 5 albino cory, 6 or 7 otos
Most tanks run with a bubbler airline, regular filter and an extra sponge filter for current and or backup filtration.
Took us months to get our tanks where we were happy with them, the 46 gallon will need a re-scape after we get rid of the pleco, he came with the tank and uproots all our plants daily.
