UPDATE: STOCK LIST

1x Pleco (Ballitorid, wont grow more that ~3")
1x Female Betta Splenden
1x Dwarf Ram Cichlid
4x Clown Loach

Thats it. No more fish that in the tank. Would the filter be good enough to satisfy these fish?

Thanks Guys!

EDIT: What sort of plants do you think I should have in this tank? And how many?

Thoughts?

Clown loach will get MUCH TO BIG!!!1 They need at leat a 55g tank as they can attain a foot as to the fluval edge size that is only aroung 30l 6-7g. And a pleco isnt the best iddea for that size tank compl,ete poop machines!! Also some can grow to 30+ inches.... Stick with the guppys.................

NEW heater!

My old heater was much too large to fit into the fluval, I have ordered this new heater which is higher quality, smaller, but just as powerful. Here is a pic..



Thanks Guys!

Yes I am getting what your saying, and thanks for your input. I will replace the 4 C/Loaches with the guppys, but I am keeping my mini plec (Ballitorid), my female beta and my ram.
