  1. I'm getting a very long 12-gallon tank and I want a school of 6 rainbow shiners, but a larger school of Kubotai rasbora would also not be bad. I know that Rainbows like 15 gallons, but since the tank is so long I thought it was worth asking at least. Tank Measurements in inches: 35.43" x 7.87" x 9.84" Aquaclear Filter 30 Sandy substrate with Manten Stone and medium planting. Thoughts?
  2. I was talking with a friend about the 10-gallon I'm setting up, and she suggested rasboras. Keep in mind the footprint of the tank is more like a 12 or 13-gallon. Here is the stocking list we came up with: 6 Chilli Rasboras 6 Kubotai Rasboras 6 Pygmy Cory's 5 Jade Shrimp 5 RCS 3 Amano's We used this stocking calculator:AqAdvisor - Intelligent Freshwater Tropical Fish Aquarium Stocking Calculator and Aquarium Tank/Filter Advisor, and it said it was fine , but I have a feeling it really isn't?
  3. Just what the tin says. Any tips on stocking, tankmates, tank substrate + decor are appreciated. I was thinking 6 neon rasboras, 6 pygmy cory, and 2-3 Amano shrimp for my next 10G tank. The tank is 23 inches long, and 14 inches wide. The goal is a cool water aquarium
  4. Tank measurements: 24 inches long, 14 inches wide, 7 inches tall Sand / Gravel substrate 9 species of plants (at least two of each) I was thinking of keeping either 9 WCMM's, 6 pygmy cory's, or 3 rainbow shiners. I'm also open to ricefish it anyone says its a good idea.
  5. I want some bigger/taller rocks so they kinda stick out of the water. My tank is 24 inches long, 14 inches wide, and 7 inches tall. The rocks that I'm considering are: Hakkai Stone, Lagoon Stone, or Wolf Stone If I were to choose any one of these how many pounds would I need?
  6. If I have the opportunity to upgrade to a 10 Gallon how many minnows can I have?
  7. It is a UNS 60L, it will be ordered as soon as I figure out if it's right for my fish of if I should upgrade.
  8. The tank is 23.62 inches long and 7.87 inches deep and tall. It's a pretty long tank. It is more like a 6.5 gallon honestly
  9. Thats a great idea! I'll keep that in mind. However I really do want to keep minnows.
  10. Not a stocking suggestion, but wow, your tank is so awesome! Elegant in a very natural way.
  11. I was reading on Aquarium Co-op about fish you could keep aquarium co-op in a 5-gallon, and they suggested WCMM's. My tank is heavily planted, with a HOB filter. How many could I keep in there? Or is it not a good idea?
  12. What kind of fish would you recommend for this kind of tank? I was thinking of minnows or rice fish, but any other suggestions are welcome.
  13. Here's what I'm planning to put in my long 6-gallon aquarium : For reference, my aquarium is 23.62 inches long and 7.87 wide and tall 2 Anubis Nana Petit 1 Anubias Barteri 1 Java Fern 2 Mini Coin Buce 1 Broad Leaf Buce Plant 2 Java moss balls Red Root Floaters Jungle Val 2 Java Fern Trident Mostly plants that grow attached to driftwood. I got a piece of Forest Driftwood as long as my tank, and I have a vision for placement. Any tips on making these plants the healthiest they could be would be much appreciated!
  14. Also, where can you buy them? I was going to buy them from Buceplant, but have heard some not-so-nice reviews.
  15. I'm planning a six-gallon planted tank to get into the hobby. These are the first fish I've had since I was eight, and I want to ensure they live well. I was thinking of ricefish because I've they are small and not super skittish compared to other nano-fish. My question is are ricefish really for beginners? I've never really heard of them before a few months ago, so I'm wondering if they are for beginners with a little more experience yk?
