The white clouds will thrive without a heater. The neons like warmer temperatures, though.

Until you can get a larger tank, you will have to really watch your water parameters and do lots of water changes and maintain your filter regularly.

hey Leo hun!

im agreed with every one else - it would be better if your neons had warmer temps - around 26*c is what i keep my tetras at.

the white clouds are fine in colder temps, but would not be harmed from raising it.

have you got the new tank for your colds yet hun? coz if you havent, then you could possibly get that, and then transfer some of your new fish into the 6g, and keep some in the 2.5. at least then they will have more space :)

i sometimes feed my trops cucumber, but i have to chop it up real tiny.

my colds also enjoy cuc, so if your going to chop it up, then you might want to try them on it!!

good luck with that hun!!

thats alright hun!

i think that if you arnt going to get a new tank, then you should really concider giving some of the fish to your friends dad. maybe yo could keep a couple of the fish that you got and just do real regular changes etc? (i know you will definately be wanting to keep your moor).

another thing you might want to try your fishies on is cooked pasta. i have fed my goldies that, and they loved it, but be careful you dont put too much in! i think they find it quite filling!!

i have never trid my trops on it though! you will have to let me know how it goes if you try it!!

good luck with the fish hun, and keep us all posted.!!
