New Tank Questions...Females & Cleaning
I recently got a 20 gallon tropical freshwater (I heard they like brackish water though so there's some aquarium salt in there) fish tank and after waiting on my cycling and such, I now have 6 fish (2 mollies, 3 platys, 1 guppy) establishing themselves.
I don't want any fry because my tank can't support a growing fish community, so I purchased all male fish. If in the future, I want to introduce a female into my tank, will I have to get more than one so that she doesn't get overwhelmed by the males?
I've purchased everything I need to clean my tank...but how soon after my fish have been introduced to the tank should I do my first cleaning (not including a water change)? There is no visible algae yet but I don't want my fishies swimming in a gunky tank either.
