I'm setting up a new tank in the next few weeks and need some advice around cycling and stocking.
I've run a fish tank most of my life but the last tank I had been running for 10 years so I've always had seeded media. This will be completely new with no existing media available so I have no clue how to get things going. Can someone please point me in the right direction of the easiest start up method? I have been looking at Seachem Stability and fish food cycling.
I haven't kept cichlids in a few years either but would like to set up a male peacock / hap tank can someone please let me know if my stock list sounds OK or what's wrong or more or less. I'm happy to remove trouble makers until I find the combo and all will be juvenile.
Details are as follows:
Aquaone Brilliance 120
120W X 45D X 65 H - approx 300L
Aquaone Nautilus 1100 Canister Filter
Pisces Black Diamond Gravel (sand drives me nuts)
Texas Holey Rock & Malaysian Driftwood
May try growing some Java Fern
Peacocks will depend on what I can find at the time but I'm not sure how many?
1 x OB Marble Peacock
1 x Dragonblood Peacock
1 x Sunshine Peacock / Flavescent?
1x Albino Peacock?
1x Rubensen Peacock / Ruby Red
1x Sulfur Crested Peacock
1x Red Shoulder
1x Red Empress (A must)
1x Copadichromis Borleyi Kadango 'Red Fin'
2 x Cuckoo Catfish or similar
2 x Bristlenose ( Algae clean up)
