I've decided to set up a brand new 20 gallon long tank! I'm currently cycling the tank and am looking at the fish! I'm using aqadvisor but I would rather have live feedback :).
My main concern is feeding, as I am sure has been seen before. Here are the fish I am thinking of getting:
(Am I being over zealous here :)?)
Am I overstocking the tank with this list? AQ has me basically at max.
I will be using an Aqueon quiet filter 30, a aqueon 100w heater holding a steady 76F temp. The tank will have no live plants as I have an LED hood and would rather not replace bulbs all the time!
So I will be getting silk plants, a few larger decorations (still deciding on a theme), and the substrate will most likely be a natural looking gravel.
As for the feeding, most of them accept flake foods (I would buy the best of the best), and the cories needing sinking pellets (again the best of the best). All of the fish would also enjoy brine shrimp or bloodworms as a supplement to their flakes. I guess my question goes, how can I be sure all the fish are getting enough to eat, and the sinking pellets aren't being gobbled up before reaching the cories? Also, when I put in worms or shrimp, how can I be sure of everyone getting the supplement they need? Do I have to anchor them so the cories get their fair share?
Sorry for all the questions :). Open to all!
