Louise02 Posted February 15 Share Posted February 15 My ten-year-old daughter ended up with a molly and a gourami in a 5-gallon tank. Needless to say, we need to plan a larger aquarium. We live in the middle of nowhere, so I can't run down the street and get supplies. While I am waiting to receive the tank (It will be almost a month!), I would like to plan this one out better than the tanks I have previously started. The gourami is getting really nippy, so I don't know if he will go into this 29-gallon tank. However, the female betta is incredibly mellow. I think that she might do fine with mollies in a large tank. Right now I have one female betta, one male molly, and one male mystery snail to go into that tank. Obviously, we'll need a few more mollies. I'd like to plan this out to have a more complete eco-system, but I would still like for it to be peaceful. This grouchy gourami is unpleasant. Is there a simple guide somewhere that I could use to help my daughter plan this aquarium to be lightly stocked, heavily planted, and easily kept? Thank you in advance for any ideas! Also, if you have any suggestions on plants that can be propagated, that would be appreciated. My daughter likes to watch to plants grow, and it might be a little more affordable to fill in a larger tank with plants that can be propagated. Thank you!
