Been lurking in the forum for a while and have learned so much in the past week or so.
I recently bought my daughter (she's only 18 months old so its has been dad doing all the looking after etc :)) a 15 litre starter tank with 2 goldfish and didnt have a clue what i was doing to be honest and was doing lots of things wrong.
I decided to get a bigger tank and opted for the 35 litre BiUbe (its gonna arrive in the next few days) which kinda looks nice but i now know that most serious enthusiasts dont have too much good to say about them. Anyway i think it will be ok for our needs.
So i have read all about cycling the tank and think i understand what needs to be done before introducing fish etc.
Now i just wanted some advice on what i should stock in the 35 litre biUbe. I have 2 common goldfish which are each about 3cm long which will go into the aquarium as soon as it is cycled. I was thinking about adding another goldfish of a similar size and then some minnows. Anyone got any advice as to which type of minnows i should go for and how many i should add to the tank?
Also been reading about trumpet snails and the good they do by cleaning any detriutus etc. Would a BiUbe be suitable for snails? If so how many would you recommend for a 35 litre tank.
Any advice or suggestions greatly appreciated.
