Presumably as long as I kept them fed with some wafers or zucchini they would be ok. I'm getting a decent biofilm building up as my lights are pretty powerful, and I'm light on plants until they arrive next week.

Currently fishless cycling at 24.5'c.

Will be stocking with South Americans. Not quite a biotope due to the planting.

Also picked up a bargain 10gal nano I'm setting up for a betta. That's almost cycled after only 3 days.

I'll try get a photo up but got a lot of bloom on the big tank.
For suck a big tank with lots of fish why dont you use that 10 gallon as a quarenteen tank?

I don't see much point in a quarantine tank. If you have a decent LFS you can trust they hold your fish a while before you buy them, after all its in their interest to supply you good service if your a valued customer. I intend to get all my shrimp and snails from one LFS, plecs from a specialist and everything else from a local store I'm building a relationship with. Plus the 10gal is stocked, 1 betta, 3 neon goby, 2 onion snails, 1 Cameroon shrimp and 5 sunshines.
