I just set up a new Aqua One UFO 550 corner (75-100L depending on source) aquarium. At the moment I have about a dozen plants of various heights and leafy density as well as rocks (lots of good hiding places) for my
9 Cardinal Tetra
4 juvenile (2-3cm) clown loaches
3 Black Mollies (2 females, one male)
I realise the clown loaches will grow and maybe have to depart at some stage, but they are happily clowning about at the moments and keeping the bottom of my tank food free (ravenous and clickly little guys)
I have been trying to use various fish stock calculators to see how many (if any) other fish I can add, but because its a corner tank none of them really seem to like calculating the litre capacity / surface area correctly. So, could some experienced keepers give me any advice?
I'd really like to get a little plec (bristlenose perhaps) and male betta or couple of angel fish to finish off the tank but don't want to cause stress.
The filter system is in the hood and really powerful.
This morning's readings
Ammonia Test (NH3/NH4) = 0
PH = 7 (test between 6.8 and 7.2)
KH = 75 (between 50 and 10)
GH =? (Color somewhere between 125 and 250
No3 = .25 mg/l
No2 = .5 mg/l
The NOs are a bit higher than normal (was barely coloured the first week) because we've been treating the tank for internal parasites (which apparently came with the fishes from the shop) so had to take out the carbon from the filter until the course is run.
Any advice is well appreciated
