Can you keep a secret? I wanna steal your tank. it looks amazing. Is it hard to care for a npt?
Yes and no...I've had more success with gravel than sand. Lighting is a bit more expensive and I boost with CO2 about once a week...and if they start to look a little scraggly I'll boost with flourish or something. But the biggest thing I think is making sure all the plants require the same light/heat/CO2 needs... (and I just realized the blinds are open in the pics I posted lmao so I'll have to say they are almost always closed!)
I am setting up a 55 gallon tank and want to have Two angels for the centerpiece. What else do you have in with them? I am trying to get stocking ideas and I love the color in your tank.
The fish other than my bottom feeders and angels are:
Red Minor (long finned)
Glow Light Tetras
Black Neon Tetras
Be careful with a pair of Angels...make sure you get the same sex. If you get a male and female, they will likely become a breeding pair. Then they will go after everything in your tank trying to make a safe area to lay eggs...and they will lay them either on your filter or on any plant resembling an amazon sword lol!
This is what that tank has looked like previously (I keep changing it every couple years)
This time I had set up the sand river for my peacock eel.
All the plants in this pic are Amazon Swords...All the little ones were grown from the two large ones in the tank.
I have a pic of it somewhere when I had cichlids in it, but I can't find it atm...I also plan on changing it again when I get a separate tank for my catfish...I love him, but he eats any type of carpet plant that I buy!
