Hi all, this is the best fish forum I have come to find and want to thank all of you for you help.
This is my first tank, I was given a 40gal tall tank, t-5 lights, biowheel penguin 200 filter, stealth heater, note sure of the specs on that.
My sister bought this tank 2 months ago and decided it wasn't for her so I jumped and took it.
In the tank right now is medium sized gravel, a piece of wood that is in the shape of a cave, a colorful rock, medium in size, another piece of wood, it looks like a tube with holes throughout, it's a small piece, two live plants, several fake plants and two more pieces of wood that stand upright that are skinny but tall.
The fish are one angel, (yellow in color) 2 blue rams, 2 scarlet badis, 1 pleco, 2 glo-lite tetras, three male guppies. I was also given 3 rasboa's, they are in a 5gal tank, wanted to know if I could add them or not?
Here are my questions, are these fish okay for this tank? How often to feed and what to feed, right now I am feeding tropical fish flake food twice a day. What can I do to make my fish happier and my tank better.
I have never tested the water, I had no idea that needed to be done and I will go and buy a test kit tomorrow and let you all know what the results are.
Thanks so much in advance for all of your help.
Forgot to mention, the water is slightly brown in color, I had the water tested at a local fish store and they told me the water was soft and was brown from the new piece of wood, everything was where I wanted it to be, I called my sister and she said the same thing, is their anything I can do to make the water more clear or just give it time?
