Loaches Aquarium 180 lit (suggestions)

Hallo friends :D I emptied my reef tank in accordance to re-design it and while doing so my wife kind of noticed how nice it was without the skimmer sound in the living room so I got to decide what to do with this tank of mine (I didn't want to go skimmerless).

Thanks for the tip about not mixing the snails and Hillis :D

Noted! I am taking the snails out of the stocking list and even the Atya shrimp. I will keep only the Hillies.

Kind regards, Dusko

Hi again :)

I am still deciding what shaoling specie to get. Are there any other shoaling species which prefer stronger currents? (except WCMM).

Sewelia and Easy Carbo/Excel dosing

Hallo frinds, I am to start building a lightly planted tank for Sewelia lineolata, so wonder if they are sensitive to the fertiliser called Excel or Easy Carbo (organic Carbon source for plants, instead of CO2).
