i haven't been through all your videos but do you have any cichlid setups? I have a South/Central american cichlid tank and i was curious about adding live plants in the tank but I think they would get eaten by the fish. I have two pimelodella catfish (four line & pictus) and a few different species of plecos along with the cichlids. any ideas about live plants in my tank? I have a video of the tank in my uploads if you need it for reference

Love the tank! I had a 90 gallon with 5 Clown loaches + 2 SAE's your rainbows are a nice idea, I think I might do that. your 220 has given me a BIG inspiration into what I want to do when I get my new tank soon! love your vids and tanks! great setup so far! hope it comes along nicely!

Make a mountain of rocks in that open area! It would look sweet with java fern all over it in cracks in between. that's what I think and it's something different for you

I say don't put it in, go a different route and see if you like it without it.

Do you have to use driftwood? You have always talked about how there is and endless supply of rock around your area and 'IT'S FREE!' IF your going for a beach like side maybe think about like a rock pool look or a cliff side. The hardest part of aquaplaning is making decisions lol

start a crs colony. you can find shrimp of every color out there check into and research the internet you will find some great info

noapwns379 - 9 years ago
if you gunna use the driftwood find a new position to put it. As for fish definatly do a species only tank or just center piece type tank. Dont do a community tank. Look at some of Takishi Amano's iwagumi scapes for inspiration! Also dont worry about pleasing us, the viewers. Do whatever you like
Bryce Perry
Bryce Perry - 9 years ago
Do like 5 discus with maybe 10 - 15 (good ratio for a 220, im not "acclimated" to that big of a tank) or so dwarf neon rainbows. Think of how beautiful that would look! Really. Give it some thought! :D

You should do only boesmanys, about 50 neons, and 50 corys and maybe some altums but they might eat the neons.

TheRossiboy - 9 years ago
I like what your doing Dustin...just taking your time, I vote for the wood to stay just because you seemed like you loved it 2 years ago on the vid of the 220, you described it as been sent from the heavens! I think if you put it in a different position or tied different stuff on it (moss for example) it would look a lot different! discus, cardinals and rummy noses would be my choice of stocking :) I'm sure whatever you do it'll look sweet!

Do an Iwagami theme style tank with driftwood. 100 of neons and let the plants fill in the holes.
fishbroloach
fishbroloach - 9 years ago
1st problem in aquscaping is the owner never thinks of there fish. are they happy? or dull. are they swimming like they should be. are the loaches playing? try a few driftwood peices in there. loaches love holes in driftwood. mine all sleep in a 3 inch hole by 6 inches. and i own all but 4 about 20 in all right now. hoping to aquire the rest. maybe dedicate a loach tank low running driftwood they love stumps!

Mccoyj189 - 9 years ago
Also the 220 has always looked sweet, I feel like the prime was around vid 65, just well balanced and so clean and crisp for such a large tank, can't wait to see the reshape my man!
Mccoyj189
Mccoyj189 - 9 years ago
Dude..... 100 Pygmy cories, 100 neons (regular not jumbo) and pair of Altums to keep everything in two gigantic schools, angels will occ. Feed on the lil ones but omg that would be sick. The rainbows can chill in the other tanks split up
Shawn de Lopez
Shawn de Lopez - 9 years ago
I say get a bunch of cories and still keep the rainbows.

A species only tank with boesemanis would look the best. You already have them you just have to switch your boesemanis with all the other rainbows and other fish in the 220. Don´t put corydoras species in it cause they need a sand bottom, not a gravel bottom. Or sell everything and buy a school of Melanotaenia trifasciata, they look great to.

@9BigGeorge They dont look like planaria or daphnia. They look like tiny little sand fleas. I am stumped.

I have an idea, like you said before, keep the middle open as a beach effect. What I picture in tanks, is types. You can either do a South American type tank with corie's, Neon's, and all kinds of Tetra's. Or you could do an Asian type with Gourami's. Or you could do an Australian type like you have now. Give it some thought and you might come up with something. =)

hmmm. about the wood. I would say get a sweet piece or a couple of pieces of manzanita from tom barr. About the fish, I would say do a species only rainbowfish tank. Show them off and breed them! you know you want to. the clown loaches are nice but I think they clash with the rainbows, IMO.

Hi Dustin, I have an issue with my tank that maybe you or one of your knowledgeable subscribers can help me with. I have these critters about the size of fleas that are all over the bottom of my tank. I am not sure where they came from. I haven't introduced anything to my tank in years. It's possible they were hiding in my medium substrate and I just didn't notice them before. Now that I know they are there, I see a bunch of them. They dont seem to be parasitic. Any ideas to what they can be?thx
