    Dear all

    I have a 90 x 75 x 45 tank that I’m trying to plan. I was aiming for an Amano planted tank (see in the intro section) – but having tested the local water and found that it’s basically liquid chalk (pH 7.5, dH 15, nitrates 30ppm), I began to look at other interesting fish that might quite like it…

    and came across the Lake Inle inhabitants which seem to cope with that kind of chemistry: microrasbora rubescenes, Danio erhythromiconr, Sawba Resplendens, yunnalnilus brevis loach and Inlecypri auropurpureus. Not sure about the last one ‘cos it jumps and I wasn’t planning a lid… but that apart, it might be interesting to set up a tank along those lines…

    which means I need ‘heavy planting’ with lots of sand substrate. So I’m wondering what to plant? Does anyone know what comes from that area? Or else, what grows well in liquid chalk?

    thanks

    To my knowledge the most prolific plants in Lake Inle are Hydrocharitaceae and Ceratophyllum which are very similar to Elodea

    There are some pictures of the lake in our profiles for the species you mention if you have time for a wee surf.

    Ceratopteris thalicroides and hornwort are both found in Lake Inle.

    Both are readily available.
