    i’m thinking of starting a 15gallon freshwater mudflat tank, with about 3in of substrate, and for lighting im gonna get a mainly plant light.

    the fish i’m gonna add are:

    marble hatchet fish x6

    freshwater flounder x5

    small coryx2

    bumblebee goby x5

    plants:

    a little bit of water sprite

    any suggestions? what do you think? anything would be helpfull :)

    Hi there,

    I personally think that with flounders, cories and bubelbees the footprint of a standard 15 gal is a bit too small. As I mentioned before, even the smallest hatchets should have at least a run of 100 cm, everything below that will seriously restrict them in their natural behaviour. 

    If you could make, or have somebody make, a tank 100x30x20 cm, you’d be only marginally above your 15 gal and could easily acommodate the species you mention.

    Regards

    R.

    Hi Ederhak, is the tank supposed to represent an estuarine environment, and which species of flounder are you looking at?
