I was in my local fish shop,called pets at home(im in scotland) and they have many tanks set up as demo tanks.
In one 60litre aquarium they had
-1 moonlight gourami
-1 3spot gourami
-2 female guppy
-6 male guppy
-1 common pleco
-1 kuhli loach
-1 red tailed black shark
-1 male platy
-1 female platy
-2 albino corys
-1 golden algae eater
-2 black neons
-2 female siamese fighers
I found one of the store assistants and acted as if i knew nothing about fish, This is how the convo went. ME*- Im looking to get a fish tank for tropical fish, can you advise me on one?
GIRL* Yes, This one here is an aquaart 60, it comes with everything you need to set it up and its in offer at the moment ME* OK, so can i purchase my fish today or?
GIRL* No, not straight away, when you get home set your tank up and add the two bottles of liquid that comes with it, then leave it for 24 hours, come back and you can start picking your fish. ME* Thats great. What are the liquids for?
GIRL* One is to remove the chlorines and chloramides in water that kill fish, the other is some bacteria that allows you to add fish almost straight away. ME* Oh right ok. Can You give me some advice on fish that are compatable and how many i could put in here?
GIRL* Yeh, You have a look round and tell me which ones you like. ME* (Walked Over To The Display Tank I Wrote About.) I Like the look of these fish in here, it looks like a lot of fish though, is it ok?
GIRL* Yes, all of these fish are community fish and have plenty of room to move around. ME* A few of them seem to be chasing each other and nipping fins, is this normal?
GIRL* Yes, this is how fish interract its almost like playing! ME* OK, thanks for your help, ill be back tommorrow
Can you believe That!!!
