NFC: okay, time for everyone's favorites...
It sounds like I will officially get my tank in 2 weeks (it's on order, paid
for, & please, please won't fall through AGAIN).
It is 180 gal glass tank. Two-light hood. Standard wet-dry filter (sorry
guys, I REALLY wanted one of those ATS filters but couldn't get the money
for it in this year's budget). Tank will be kept at an average of 72F
(can't afford a chiller but building is AC/heated to a pretty constant
temp, a little cooler in winter).
It is intended as a warm-water native fish (native to NE Colorado) display
in a Visitor Center at a national wildlife refuge in Denver where it will be
used as as starting point for discussions of water quality, habitat
preservation, and other assorted topics.
So now, given that I have essentially no money for fish except out of my own
pocket at the momment, what would be good fish to put in here? I would like
to have fish that swim at all levels. I was thinking two or three
orangespotted sunfish for a midlevel fish? maybe some plains killifish (if
I can find 'em) for some size variety
I can landscape it however I would like to provide hiding spots, etc. Live
food can also be provided as I already raise crickets & guppies & mice for
other environmental education animals, what's one more? :)
Suggestions and possible sources would be really appreciated.
