I'm leaving on monday and I'd be able to get the fish today. My grandfather will be at the house and he absolutely can't stand the smell of ammonia he says. So i figured id be better off leaving him with some hardy fish to feed a pinch in the morning and at night while i'm gone.

Yeah i would be going today this afternoon to get them. What do you guys think to start with...a group of neon tetras or cherry barbs. They both look good and i can't really decide. And how many should i get? If i'm not getting the RTS i know for sure i want one of those two schoolers and a blue ram is all. I'll decide from there what else to get.

Also my readings are ammonia 0, nitrite 0, and nitrate is around 20ish. Should i do a water change and if so how big?

Based on what I've read the required minimums are for each of these species (and knowing I was going to be adding one ram at a later date) this what I'd do if it was my tank (and it's not!): I'd get either 10-12 neons or 7 cherrys.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
