What fish should I catch?
I have a 28 gallon tank. It is layered with gravel and 2 bamboos, plus 2 fix plants. There is a pot in the corner.
Currently, all I have is 4 small womanly guppies and 3 platies in that tank.
I was thinking a fish that school, low maintenance. I would like a pleco or corydora, or some type of sucking fish.
Neon tetras, and zebra danios I want. I only own $30 bucks to spend.
So what should I get?
Oh yeah and please provide soe informational websites.
Thanks in advance. :)
Other than that you are on the right track with stocking. I presume the tank has fully cycled immediately? Go with a nice shoal of at least 6 Neon Tetras and see what change is not here over for 3-4 Corys (such as Bronze or Sterbai - these are the more common ones, avoid Pandas as they're quite delicate).
Check out this site beneath the freshwater section to see basically whats available. Every pet store Carry's most of this sites fish, if they don't consequently they are not well stocked. this site offers a brief description of each fish, whether you want to no more about it just stick the fishes name surrounded by google. Good Luck
I hoped this helped..
the corydora or pleco
you already have the tropical community fish (ex. guppies)
i would suggest you get more of those (without overcrowding, they breed swiftly!) and make sure any other fish are not aggressive
i hold long finned zebra danios.. they're never boring
i also have rummy nosed tetras which are a really great schooling fish. i have 19 of these guys, but they do better surrounded by established tanks, as they can be a bit sensitive. what about some freshwater shrimp? like cherry or apparition shrimp... as long as the other fish you have in your tank are not predators after they would be very happy living in your cistern dealing with algae and excess food.
the best part about keeping an aquarium (i think) is finding unknown fish that will do well in your tank. Take your time and do your research and take heed not to overcrowd your tank. introduce them slowly too.. don't go out and shock your tank near a ton of fish all at once, it will throw off your carefully cycled river and you might get an outbreak of ich.
