So, I already have an empty 20G (Tall), that I plan to use for a sorority. I only have 3 Girls at the moment, however on top of girls I'd like to have some Neon's. It will be a planted tank, with tons of different sized flower pots, broken and what not, at least this is my ideas. If I go with this plan, how many girls, and Neon's should I have, or should I include a different fish with them? (Shrimps, Snails Algae Suckers, etc) I have no idea for substrate or overall theme though, shoot me some ideas.
Then I have two 10G's I plan to make divided tanks for my breeder males. I plan to divide it 3 times to make 4, 2.5G areas, good plan? The substrate in these is already white sand, I plan to have live plant, and moss in each section as well as some turned over flower pots. However, for a divided tank what makes the best filter, also does anyone have a link to a DIY dividers? I'd want to mesh kind to allow better flow and to kind of block off them seeing each other too much. This will make room for 8 fish in two tanks. =3 (I have 2 Halfmoons, what does this mean? Wooo)
Sooo.. Look below at my somewhat-sexy drawing to give you an idea of the layout. That's my wall color, floor color and trim too, the shelves will be black. =3 (not exactly draw to proportion, because I didn't include lids, filters, heaters etc. which there is enough room for btw) Imagination people!
The top shelf I would add a light and used for jarred males I would sell. I do have a 30Gallon I really want to use as the breeder/grow-out tank, however there are currently 8 Mbunu cichlids in there, (cichlids were an old hobby of mine, I finally got their numbers to 8, in one tank. haha, I do have one Krib in the 10G, but hopefully he has a new home.) So if I can find someone to adopt them I'll have my 30G breeder/grow-out.
I currently have:
2 HM Females
1 VT Female
2 HM Males
1 CT Male
2 VT Males
= 8 Fishes
My CT & VT's are going in these really cool 2.5G and 3G vases. =3
ANYWAY, shoot your ideas out at me, we can design this together. Wooo!
