Default Lemuria Parça

Hello everyone , this is my "new" tank of 300 liters.
I used Aqualit as a substrate, silica sand and sand from the Loire (France), OHKO stones and some roots.
As plants , only Echinodorus tenellus , Stringy Moss (Leptodictyum riparium) , some Eleocharis parvula
and I am also experimenting with a native plant (non-commercial) whose name I do not know .
Fauna ,still not sure , perhaps some pseudomuggil , but not sure ,now continue with cycling .
.





The native plant

Wow that is fabulous! I don't quite think Pseudomugil sp. would suit that scape though. I think something slender would look good. My suggestion would be Trigonopoma pauciperforata. I have some in my 150L holding tank and they are very cool fish

Thank you very much,Trigonopoma pauciperforata it would be a good choice, I am thinking, among boraras brigittae, hassemania nana or Pseudomugil (Gertrudae, tenellus?) Or continue with the group of Paracheirodon axelrodi I have right now in another tank.
I'll think a bit

saludos

I love the scape, it has great texture to it.
The native plant looks delicate and beautiful, I would love to see how it does as your tank progresses!

If I may make a suggestion on fauna,Rasbora dorsiocellata would be an excellent choice for the scape. They aren't too flashy, but they also school tightly, unlike many of the tetras I have kept. A large group would be stunning in this tank!
I think you will find that boraras brigittae too tiny for the tank, the one I have in with my rasbora dorsiocellata looks small compared to them, and they are quite small themselves. Hasemania nana would be a great choice, I think. Any gold or silver schooling fish would compliment the scape very well.

Thank you very much Phact , Rasbora dorsiocellata measuring up to 6 cm, and I would get something smaller, and it said to put brigittae would give more sense of space, but I like the hassemania, if I get a good group in exchange for my Cardinals, I put.
saludos

Yes I agree with Phact, the brigittae are a bit small for this tank. I think either T. pauciperforata or Rasbora dorsiocellata will look excellent in this scape!

Naultinus , It all depends if someone takes the fish I have now (Paracheirodon axelrodi, Hemigrammus rhodostomus).
All the options you have mentioned me look good .

Hi, I've been making some changes, the moss (riparium) has moved to the back of the tank, I have put a white background, and have made ​​changes to wood, I added Bolbitis heudeloti, some Blyxa auberti, some Eleocharis, Fissidens fontanus and "wild" aquatic moss collected here near my house, when this moss after more than two weeks, going well, although it grows slowly as most mosses. Algae, at the moment, giving me no problems until now only had co2 and just yesterday started to get KNO3, now expected to grow plants .
Finally I decided to stay with the Cardinals, and there is also a Amano shrimp and Cambarellus patzcuarensis

Wow that is simply beautiful! I really love it! Personally I think it is much better than a lot of Amano's tanks

The way you mix your substrate is wonderful.
Seems like i'm actually seeing the base of a river. This is surely better than Amano.

Can you tell me how you mix stones, gravel and sand in your aquarium?
Do you use base ferts for this scape?
