Cherry Barbs, Harlequin Rasboras or Glowlight Tetra's
I have been cycling my tank for my sister for Christmas for several weeks now. There is almost no ammonia, and i am hoping nitrite will soon drop. I know i should just wait until the tank is completely cycled but she would really like to get the fish for Christmas, so i was planning on getting some on Christmas eve.
I am currently looking at the first schooling fish that i would like to add. So Far its between:
8 Glowlight tetra's
6 Harlequin Rasboras
6 Cherry Barbs
I would do water changes today tomorrow and thursday, to get nitrite levels below .25, and then would continue to do so to keep them below that. I would also only get 3 to start with.
What do you think would be the best school of fish, and i am also open to hear other suggestions.
Once the school is settled i would also like to add a couple platies.
