Hello everybody I'm new to fish owneing business and wanted to get some opinons about my current set up. Any kind of criticism is welcome and would be appreciated. I currently have a set up that was spread out over two tanks that were 29 gallons longs each. I then had to move to a new appartment and so I decied to condense my two tanks into one by purchasing a 18'' deep 36'' length 21'' and a 1/4 tall which is 59 gallons tank.
This is my set up:
36" MarineLand LED
/ Moonlight Auto Timer.
55/75 Aqueon Quiet Flow 400GPH
SunSun HW-303B 4-Stage External Filter 370GPH W/ 9W UV
Tetra Whisper AP150
Now all these are brand new and working wonderfully! MY tank is crystal clear with the amount of fish I have.
9 Albino Coryodoras
7 Golden Dojo's
1 BN Pleco
1 Chinese Algae Eater
4 Silver Tipped Tetra
2 Stripped Danios
I plan on giving the 4 Silver Tipped Tetras, 2 Danios, and the Chinese Algae Eater back to a LFS
I also have white micro pebble for the base in my tank with 2 large peices of drift wood and plenty of plants for hideing.
I really would like to cut down on the dojo loach count by 4 and the corys by 3. That way I could possibly have room for 2/3 Clown loaches (yes I know they can outgrow the tank quickly I enjoy them for the company) and or a BGK / Elephant Nose. I understand the BGK should be kept in tanks upwards to the 200+ Gallon but ive also heard of people having no problem keeping them in a 55. I once had one in my 29 gallon long for a year or so before Katrina. Im really about having social fish that are not only enjoyable to watch and handle but something I can really sit down and be marveled at. I really enjoy doing tons of homework on the fish I love and the best ways to keep my fish happiest and healthiest! Please any advice is welcomed. Thank you
