another step closer

well today I wiped down the entire aquarium with a 10% bleach and water solution ,let it dry and did it again,I then washed all my gravel with just cold water .

Here is what I have so far
60 gallon long (cleaned and ready to go)
60 lbs black gravel Cleaned and ready to go
Aqua clear 110 (cleaned and ready to go )
Hydor THEO Submersible Aquarium Heater 400W UL (cleaned and ready to go)
50 ftAqueon Aquarium Water Changer (cleaned and ready to go)

I have decided to go with semi aggressive fish ..

Thats what I have so far

Sharks, cats... Doesn't really help...

Red tail sharks? Rainbow sharks?

Cory catfish? Pleco? Channel catfish?

Also, Danios need a group of at least 6, and may get eaten by an adult red tail shark or channel cat, depending on what you mean..

Many Gouramis are peaceful, if delicate. I wouldn't count them as aggressive unless you add two many males to a tank.

I'm sorry, I didn't mean to say I have a problem..

Picking fish can be one of the most complicated parts of setting up a tank, and wanted to check to make sure you researched your species before you get started...

A tank with incompatible fish is doomed from the start.
To start out with, you could look through our Tropical Fish Profiles

May also want to find out what your local water parameters are, and find fish that suit it...

Be nice Redchigh!! :)

When looking for a solution to an Aquarium problem go slow and change only one parameter at a time!
