Yes. Had 25 Black Neons with 100s of Neocaridina in the same 80cm tank for a long time.
Cool! Then I won't rule them out.
Some new plant additions as well as livestock coming up later today. Watch this space
New additions; Hygrophila pinnatifida and Myriophyllum 'Guyana'. Myriophyllum is planted behind the Blyxa instead of Bacopa caroliniana as I found the leaf size to large for that part of the tank.
I think the Hygrophila will (and already has) improved the shade/light balance a lot.
I'm a bit late to the party and only just discovered this thread. Really loving the latest "Succession" in the image above.
JEK, can I ask, and please excuse my ignorance and lack of knowledge, what are the mossy clumps at the bottom right and leading down from the rocks?
Thanks a lot! The mossy clumps are Aegagropila linnaei (actually a green algae).
First vertebrates are going to be added soon.
Thanks JEK. I'm learning something new every day. When I look for Aegagropila linnaei, Google comes up with Marimo Moss Balls. Are they the same and maybe cut in half?
Exactly - I have torn most of them in half.
Brilliant. Thanks for all the help Johan, really appreciated.
You're very welcome.
C. pygmaeus added - only 4 so far (long story), but the plan is to get at least twice as many.
They like <"really small food items">. Grindal worms are <"another favourite food">.
They do have tiny little mouths. I'll try and get a hold of some grindal worms and start a culture.
Better without the moss balls?
I kinda like it with moss balls as well as without.
The moss balls look cute though.I like the one with the moss balls haha.
I might add them back again
I vote without, much cleaner!
.....and more small stone work at front instead
I liked the moss, but maybe not as many. Around 5 little blobs in amongst the rocks would be my choice.
Lovely tank - similar layout to what I'm hoping to achieve in my sons new tank (though I doubt it'll look anywhere as good as this one).
Can I just ask what Buce species you have in the image above? Did you buy them at that size, or have they been grown on in another tank?
Separate names with a comma.
