Hello, I have all the supplies I need for a tropical aquarium. I know how to cycle the tank/set it up/etc. I have all the plants and decorations to set it up with plenty of hiding spots and caves. (I have three tanks available. 10 gallon, 20 gallon long, and 35 gallon...) What I'm asking right now is what fish that I have listed below are compatible? (Similar temperaments, food & water requirements, and will basically just be able to live together well.) Mainly interested in these (In groups by possible combinations I'm interested in like I listed below. Really not too picky!): With all possible groups: Pink Ramshorn Snails (at most 3 - very interested in these!) Ghost Glass Catfish (Fairly interested) Tetra Group: (Most interested in these!) Von Rio Flame Tetras Long Finned Blushing Skirt Tetras Other Group: (2nd best choices.) Cherry Barbs / Gold Barbs Rasbora Brigittae Maybe: (Not very interested but still possible.) Ghost Shrimp Basically I want fairly inexpensive fish that I can get at a Petsmart or Petco. As for getting other suggestions: I'm interested in either clear / glass / transparent fish or red colored fish. Right now I'm just looking for what will be compatible in terms of getting along together / temperament and in terms of feeding / water needs... Once I know which fish I'll look into how many of each and any other special care needs. The tank choices I have (I already own) are 10, 20 gallon long, or a 35 gallon. Thanks soo much! -Elaine Selene
I took a few pictures of the community tank. I am currently supplementing the crappy, plant killing standard lighting with a 23watt CFL bulb, and dang it makes a difference for some of these plants Three of my aponogeton are blooming, the newest growth on my giant hygros is significantly better quality than the sad lower half of the plants, and even my amazon swords are still alive. My crypt wendtii is producing a couple baby plants as well. Added the driftwood with the anubias, it is going to look much better when the plants have attached themselves to the wood and have grown. Cid loves the planted driftwood and uses it as his "throne" in the tank. He also looks so much better, his fins are all healed up. I do believe he is happier without the other angels. I swear, somehow he gave them all a columnaris infection to kill them off The cories love hanging out underneath the driftwood I love love love the black neon tetras and the bloodfin tetras. Both are so beautiful, but most photos don't do them justice. I also love how due to their "larger" size, the angelfish does not see them as snacks, opposed to the regular neons and glowlight tetras that got snacked up.
