View Full Version : 7' planted SA biotope (sort of)

08-15-2004, 12:55 AM
I'm getting a 7'x15"x15" bay front tank that I would like to try planting as it has 2x4' & 2x2' fluros (ie plenty of light).

The problem is the inhabitiants I have earmarked as centrepieces are a couple of severums. They have absolutely anniilated every plant in their current tank (except crypt & anubias) but I was wanting a SA biotope tank so other than maybe amazon swords, what plants would be resiliant enough or taste bad to the sevs?

I also have 2 blue acara's & a heap of BN's ready and was looking at 6-8 silver/spotted dollars as dithers with probably 3-4 pictus catfish, along with platies/guppies.

Would rams also survive with these guys?

Am I asking too much to have a planted tank with these guys?
