    Hey Slin no need to follow the 11-13 rule for Dutch I reckon. If you can make it look good thats all that matter.

    I’m enjoying the tank none the less. Still got me intrigued! Like how I removed a take away container and did not make a real dent into the picture.

    Will have to do a tank walk through at some stage.. you are close with your estimate, tank is 900 x 600 x 480 .
    So pulled out the CO2 diffuser (making too much noise, sounded like crickets chirping) stuck it in the John Guest port on the return pump horizontal pipe. Lots of back pressure from the Eheim but seems to work a treat. The beetle bubble counter is still going nuts. 6-10 bubbles a second

    Nice. Yes you will need a ton of CO2 for this tank. I think you can submit to Dutch category in AGA if you are keen; Although maybe need to fix species numbers but who cares! Just submit anyways.

    Hmm you have heaps of options given good size.

    Are you thinking native vs others? Schooling vs feature fish? Rare vs common? Will you have shrimp in the tank?

    Ok so big school cardinals is a must , then some other type of tetra perhaps black? I do indeed love rummy nose as they swim immaculately and eat ground cover but still up there on the wish list.

    In fact any of my guppy / Endlers deserve a spot in this tank as they also look rather nice these days from the laboratory breeding programs they have been subjected to. Nice to see the girls looking stunning and the boys on point! Win win except when your prize ends up in the weir.

    Fishrock has cardinals for $3 as you may know.... good quality as well. Yeah the rummys used to eat my AR mini and it never grew. Also ate my pogo helferi too... Ba$$#%@s..

    How about black skirt tetra?

    Or Burmese rummy nose....:P

    Couple of RAMS or apistos?
