| || | White Clouds in a 10gal Tank
I am getting my old 10gal tank back into becoming fish ready again, and going to wait a couple of months while I replace a few things like the hood and filtration system and add a couple of plants to help getting a natural look and cycle going. One fish I'm thinking about is a school of White Clouds, maybe 5 or 6, and I'm wondering about two things: What kind of conditions do they require in order to be at their best, like water temp. and hardness, and the other being what fish would be a good mix with them. Bettas I'm not too sure about, mainly because they require warmer water, and I wouldn't mind neon or cardinal tetras, but I'm not sure if their standards conflict with the clouds or not.
I am considering a few cory catfish and a bristlenose pleco, and looking for something to fill in the other two levels in the tank. Another set of fish I'm looking into are guppies, but I'm not too sure how high their requirements they require. Anyway, open to suggestions and advice since this would be the first time in a long time that I've tried to run two tanks at the same time.
