I this is my 40g tank that I set up. Everything but the light was DIY. I built the stand and filtration system and the background and decor (minus driftwood. Bought three pieces. Grew some of the plants and bought some) it has very few fish at the moment. I'll prolly keep it that way maybe add a small school of something idk. Have DIY co2
I have set up for it.
The stock list:
5 gold barbs
1 halfmoon betta (does fine with barbs and everyone)
2 peppered Cory cats (going to up the school to 5 or 6)
1 hammers cobalt blue lobster (crayfish does fine I keep him well fed and make sure the food I provide is easier to catch and eat than the fish)
6-10 Of something I'll add a small school . Idk what yet.
Lighting is t5s tho I'm getting another plant bulb for it.
Filter is a overflow tube with trickle tower which gets pumped back up.
Tell me what you think!
