I don't know if you can grow plants in it or not. You'd have to ask someone who knows about sand. You might pm Aunt Kymmie. She knows a lot about that kind of stuff.

So I got bored again, stupid lack of social life, and decided to draw my tanks plans in MS paint.


The tall plants in the back are going to be that easy to care plant that starts with an A that escapes me right now.
The short grass stuff is going to be java grass or anything else I can find that looks like that.
The big brown blob is supposed to be driftwood, Im trying to find a piece that arches up like that.
The two caves are going to be formed, hopefully, fromthose two rock formation decors I had in my breeding tank, covered in sand except the front hole.

What do you think, there will probably be more of the tall plants in the back and the grass will probably be bunched more together but I couldnt really shoe that in the pic.

When looking for the females look for small fined and small bodied...These are usually the young ones

Thanks but Im not sure about the whole artist thing, lol.

My Petco has seems to recieve many shipment of those almost baby looking ones, that are probably less than an inch. I was thinking about just getting a bunch of those but I dont know if that would increase tension between them and Marina.

Ive also discovered it is very difficult to find sand, neither Walmart or Petco have sand so tommorow I have to look at Lowes and another local petstore.

I don't think you can judge necessarily by size, who's going to be the most dominant. I think it's going to be trial and error and you just have to watch very closely and if you see one constantly bullying the others then remove her.

Well I still cant find any sand. Im going to have to keep looking maybe on the internet.

I noticed Aquabid has some nice driftwood pieces, a nice oneon theretoo for just $7 Im waiting for the email on shipping prices though.

I am also disappointed because I found that most grass like plants are medium to high light plants. Would my 15w Florescent be considered low or medium?
