PearlTheBetta Posted April 2 Share Posted April 2 Hello, all. I appreciate this forum, Cory. I have 3 10 gallons, a 5 gallon, and a 2.5 gallon tank that I care for. The 2.5 gallon has 2 guppy babies and 4 mystery snails. I have very soft water. I put wonder shells in all my snail tanks. Is there anything else I can do to help my little friends thrive? In the 5 gallon is a male betta named Smothy (my kid didn't know how to spell Smoothie), 3 more mystery snails, and a clown plecko named Squirtle who literally never moves at all. I have plants and budget lighting in all my tanks. It doesn't seem to matter where I put him; he immediately hides. He's going into one of my new 10 gallons as soon as they are cycled. One of my ten gallons has my gorgeous female elephant ear betta, Pearl, a single white cloud and 3 albino corys who will get friends and move to one of the other 10s soon, 6 pepper corys, and 10 chili rasboras. One 10 has only a female koi galaxy betta named Morgan. And the other gas a dwarf gourami named Shiney Gillbert: Destroyer of Worlds because my oldest son, youngest daughter, and husband couldn't agree on what to name him. I'm fairly new to aquariums or at least I feel like I still have a lot to learn. The two newest 10s only have one fish in them because I'm scared to throw a bunch of fish in right away. I can draw you one heckin diagram about the nitrogen cycle, but I don't understand it practically. So... I put a butt ton of plants I bought off of ebay in the tanks. Then I did daily water changes for a week (90% adding api quick start and stress coat with every change). Then I added my non schooling loner fishy and have done daily water changes (50% adding the same products with each change) for a few weeks. Now I plan on adding the 3 corys to one tank, and the white cloud and 3 friends for her to the other at the end of this month. I plan on eventually having a full school of 6 corys, and 8 mid to top water schooling fish in each tank adding fish 3 or 4 at a time over the next few months. Any advice or help are much appreciated. 4 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
