I will ask if they will hold em. As for ordering more, even if they say they could, **** happens.

I am already having troubles finding Panda Cory's and Bristlenose Pleco around here (even custom ordered in). So I am hesitant to put anything to chance.

I would even be willing to buy an empty 10 gallon with a heater and do daily water changes then keep the tank for future use.

Huzzah! The problem is solved! Called Petcetera and apparently the Albino Pristella's are a breed they carry regulary, so I can cycle my tank empty without worry.

My god I worry to much...

Now I need some ammonia...

You could just get a raw shrimp and throw it in. It'll break down and cause plenty of waste for your tank to cycle with.

Would a tank like this be considered good stocked, overstocked or room for more?


8 Albino X-Ray Tetra's
6 Panda Cories

Sounds good to me! I would hold off on the clown pleco until you have some decent algae growth. Also, clowns really love driftwood, so I would recommend adding a piece. It looks great, anyway.
