I have just attained a 40 gallon tank, 36x18x16. As of right now i have it cycling, its been about a week and a half and there is a betta
, 4 corycats, and a clown pleco
. These were originally in my 10 gal. I've done quite a bit of research and have narrowed it down to making the 40 gallon tank a cichlid tank. There are three main cichlid, firemouth, blue acara, and a severum(give or take) i would like to have in there, along with a Senegal Birchir. Should i only have one of each? could i add some type of schooling fish? should i have a clean up crew? Will there be a problem with this set-up? im looking to have a colorful tank with decent sized fish.
I am a newbie as i started with a betta about a year ago, and moved up to a 10 gallon tank about 11 months ago. i have an
quietflow 30 for up to 45 gallons, a 15 inch air stone, and a 200 watt
that i have yet to put in. i will be buying the top and light within the next week. Any recommendations?
