I have recently bought a Fluval 125 (125 Litres / 33 US Gallons / 27 UK Gallons). (Three or so weeks back now).
I set it up not so long ago and used some of my Filter media from another Tank I have to boost the tanks cycle time, after about a week I bought some Green Tiger Barbs, and several days after that I had to take them back due to them being -FAR- too nippy, even for Barbs. (Honestly never seen anything like it).
I knew Barbs to be nippy but I have NEVER seen such a feisty bunch
(I had 5 Barbs, which was sufficient enough for the Tanks 'Predicament' I.E not fully cycled, and it made a small, but sufficient shoal).
Anyhow, I currently have no fish in my 'New' Tank, but intend to put some in soon enough. I recently bought some Cherry Barbs for my 'Old' Tank and I have been thinking about swapping them over into my 'New' Tank.
But before I do that, I was curious if anyone could possible make me a personalised list of Community fish (With Links/Tags if possible!)
that can tolerate one another and also be in the tank I specified (No nippy fish please).
(I don't mind if it does not include Cherry Barbs, as they are happy enough swimming about in my 'Old' Tank).
The fish cant be too big, since its not exactly a 'big' tank - Infact the largest fish I might put in would probably be a Bristle-nose Pleco (They grow up to 5") - Just to give you guys an example.
So anything that isnt above 5 Inches will be awesome.
My imagination isn't the best, and I really do struggle to find fish I like that also work well in combinations of one another, not to mention I am still somewhat of a Novice.
- Really do appreciate the support.
