Okay, so I've had my new 55 gallon tank set up for a few weeks now (I think about three weeks), and currently have five Red Eye Tetras, five Serpae tetras, five Glo-fish, and ONE neon tetra. I KNOW I should have a ton of them to have them shoal, but I've had six and this is the only one to survive from Walmart...I will get 9 more to replace them next weekend.
I have about 20 silk plants, which are so beautiful, and about 50 lbs of black substrate (sand). I also plan to add some McFarlanes Water Dragons as decorations, and some huge/medium castles. Yes, I have plenty of room for them all. My fish are so happy, except my poor little neon. But when it gets some more friends, I think it will be okay.
My question!! Is it okay to have a Plecostomus in a tank that has sand substrate?? I've had plecos before, but they were in a huge pond outside, so I didn't know if they should only be in tanks with larger substrate or not. Thanks!
