Well it's finally starting, my 1st tank!! I'm still waiting for the last layer of black paint on the back to dry, but then I'll post some pictures
So for substrate, I have 35 lbs. of super natural by caribsea( 7-5lb bags) and I'm awating my order from dr. Foster and smith which has my 3 cichlid stones and 2 pieces if mopani driftwood. Tommorrow I will pick up some lava rock. Can't wait for it!!
I'm not sure if I will grow plants, I'd love too but I can't upgrade lights. I have the marineland biowheel kit's led lights. The plants I already have(for a science project) are mondo grass, windelov java fern, narrow leaf java fern, and not sure about the last one, I'll edit when I do know. Can i put any of them in the tank? ill be doing a fishless cycle and then here's my stocking. Still open for suggustions
1 zebra angelfish
6 rumynose tetras
12 neons or Mabye 6 black widow tetras(would these work?)
5 endlers or guppies
4 panda or 3-lined Cory's
1 German blue ram
1 apistogramma
2 pearl gouramis
So that's all, any suggustions, comments, or anything is appreciated!

I think you are a LITTLE overstocked. Here is what I would suggest.

I Angel
6 RummyNose
6 Lemon Tetras
4 Panda Cories
2 German Blue Ram
But, what kind of apisto were you thinking of?

Agassazi. But from what most people on the site agree, it is ok, I will still tinker with it a bit

Due to the footprint of the tank, I too believe this is slightly overstocked. I would take out the endler's, and probably the gouramis as well. Angels get very large, and will take up a lot of space when fully grown. I'm glad to see you're finally starting!

If you do one honey gourami instead of two pearl gouramis that would probably be OK.

yup....and, if you're like me, what you get in this tank after it's cycled will be much different than what you're planning on now I don't even remember how many times I switched around the stocking plan on my 29 gallon, and then, when I went to the lfs, I got something completely different

Oh my goodness, I am the SAME! I am just starting my 25 gal too, and it is a completely different stock then when I started planning it!
