i generally feed my fish mosquito wrigglers because that's what i can catch in my garden. there are usually a few bloodworms in there as well but not a lot. i should probably invest in some frozen bloodworms...if they are cheap...applies to everything lol, i should get this i should get that..if it's cheap.

show to your mom.





15 gallons is kinda small since both types average 5 inches and since the zebra needs to be in a shoal of 5 or more.you will need to consider what other tank mates you wanna house with them with or do you want a species only tank.

i thought it might be too small. i wanted a shoal of cherry barbs, and i already have the golden gourami. if they're going to be too big for the tank, i might just get a bristlenose pleco because you know i love them

if you want a planted keep in mind let the plants settle down and have roots first esp cabomba. i told another member that BN will eat certain plants if underfed but he had already gotten the BN and it disrupted his plants a wee bit and he got rid of them. a caution thats all
