Get some fish as well: makes your tank much more exciting


Seriously, though, it looks like you got it all pretty well covered. You could add some larger rocks, to create some extra hiding spots: just make sure they don't have any sharp edges.

Good luck :smile:

I have never had a problem with any products, I think that stress-coat is over priced for declorinator - and that is really all it is.

I also reccomend melafix and proper pH 7.0 from aquarium pharmaceuticals (sp)

But in my box I try to always have:
*test kits - pH, Nitrate, Nitrite, ammonia
*medicines - covering everything, from white spot to slime, from internal bacteria to ulsers and wounds and more!
*aquarium salt
*dechlorinator
*a spare heater and filter

Everything else I have I feel is generally unnecessary, except for special circumstances.

In your tank you should have plenty of cover.

get yourself a wide variety of foods for them as well. Also you mite want to get some meds just in case you ever need em, stuff like Melafix is good to have around just in case, also some aquarium salt is good to have too :smile:

One more to do... Take a pix of your tank to post in the PIX forum. Maybe you can be the winner of the month contest.
