Okay so I have another problem found out we have to move out in about 8months. So we have already found a place... thankfully that the people will have there lease up a month before we must be out so we can put a deposit on it. (Have the landlord holding for us thankfully he's a nice guy!) But when I asked about fish aquariums.. he said the LARGEST allowed is preferablly a 55G or less. I begged and pleaded to get a 75G which I assured him is the exact same size except like 6inches wider and 3/8 inches taller. My main question here is.. can my stocking plan work in a 55g Fine, or do I really need the 75 G? Here is going to be my ending stockings as far as FISH goes.. I'll have inverts and more plants.
2 Angel Fish (One Adult, one Juvvy.) *MAYBE more if room allows later on.*
5 GloFish (Currently have 3) *Maybe more here also since I heard they like schoals*
6 Peppered Cory Cats *need 1 more*
6 Albino Cory Cats *need 4 more*
4 Platys (3 Females 1 Male- Have)
I currently also have 5 Guppies, like 3 males 2 females.. was more females but they disappeared
... Still never found them..
So question still awaits an answer.. should I just do the 55G with a nice planted tank (maybe a few more angels.. or something else..) with a sand bed, (plan to get MTS and some weird worm I was reading about that will crawl threw the sand. They will be added to the tank wayyy before the fish will to get a feel of the place first.) Plan to make the sand bed between 2 to 3inches so I can grow almost any plants.
Well thanks for any advice, information or anything else in advance. I can do either tank.. Just I want to know if the 55G will work just fine or if I need the bigger one. I prefer the bigger one but don't want to buy and upset my landlords in the next few years haha!
