PJN's 135 Litre Mekong River
#1
The Backstory

So exactly a week ago I inherited a second-hand AquaNano 80/130. This week I've been cleaning it up and finally it has been cleaned (ish) and placed on the stand. The tank has had many uses and inhabitants, from discus to neon tetras. It's apparently a fairly old/rare type of tank so it's been hard to get some information on it such as lighting etc. which shall be elaborated upon more below...

The Machinery/Decor

The tank came with several decorations and machinery, including:
  • What I believe to be ADA Aquasoil
  • Some rocks and stones (which allegedly do not change the pH so that's good)
  • An Askoll Powerhead 301 (one of the older models)
  • An ADA HL-300 heater (again I think an old model)  
  • An undergravel heater
  • And some lights, which are impossible to find the wattage of!   

The Plan

So as you can probably see from the title, I'm planning on making a Mekong river biotope for my sparkling gourami mainly as they are showing some fair territorial issues. This larger tank will enable them to have more room to roam and help them establish territories, and also help me get more fish Smile

The tank as it stands is attached below.

My current planting/stocking plan is as follows.

Plants:
  • Java fern
  • Java moss
  • Dwarf and giant hairgrass
  • Tiger lotus
  • Crypt. Wendtii

Fish:
  • Least Rasbora
  • Sparkling Gourami
  • Dwarf/Khuli loach
  • Checkered barb

(you could have corrected the spelling of rasbora Wink Big Grin)
If at first you don't succeed....

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!

I've had an idea! I really really like the look of paludariums, and was wondering if I could incorporate one in here. I could have a wall of rocks on one side across the tank serving as a barrier where on one side there is soil and on the other there is just the water. Also I love glass and anchor catfish, but I think they needed cooler water? Also are dwarf and Khuli loaches compatible together?
