I would like some J. Transcriptus Bemba. Someone near me is selling them, so I can get them easily. I have an understocked (9 Dwarf Neon Rainbows, a m/f pair of swordtails, and 5 or 6 guppies) and heavily planted 55 with a sand bottom, a ph of 7.5-7.7 and minimal rockwork. The tank has been up almost a year and is very stable. I also have a pair of 10g's that are cycling. I want to silicone oystershells into a nice hardscape with plenty of caves, kh and ph buffering for one of the 10's, give it a poolsand substrate, and put in some J. Transcriptus. I wuld also add rocks to the 55, and when I get a pair, move all the other cichlids into the 55. The seller says they will only grow to 1.5 inches, so I think it may work even though they are cichlids.
My question is will this work, and if it will, how many cichlids should I buy to get a pair? Also, any tips are welcome, as I've never done anything like this before.

Thank you. Now I just have to wait for 10g #2 to cycle (10g #1 is a DIY CO2 garden soil planted tank)
