Hey folks. First off I want to say thanks to everyone for all the advice while I have been setting up my tank, first one in decades. Everything is going great so far. You can see my gallery for pix.
As many predicted, I have been infected with MTS
. Not long after I got started, two of my friends decided they were done messing with fishtanks, and offered me their now empty tanks, a 10 and a 20 high.
Those are destined to be a QT(10) and a ngara fry grow out (20). I have been looking at a space in my computer/fish room that was almost big enough for the 50 gallon. It is sort of a closet with no doors.
I live in an old, <100years, house. Sort of farmhouse style. Built before anybody had the bright idea of built in closets. The c/f room has a added on little closet space in one corner about 47" wide x 24" deep x 6' tall . I want to put two levels of shelves in, bottom level for the 10 and the 20 and then for the top level I think a 40 gallon breeder, 36" wide x 18" deep x 16" high, would fit perfectly with room for a HOB
I am thinking shell dwellers for the 40 gallon. I would like to do a shell dweller mix with L. ocellatus 'gold' and N. multifasciatus, but I cant find much info about mixing shellie species.
Anybody here already keep these spunky little guys? Any thoughts on the plan as a whole? This is all very much in planning stages, I want to really take my time on this project. I am happy with how my current tank turned out but I would have done a few things differently if i had found this site earlier
